Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock . . . midnight.
The old millennium turns into the new.
In the same hospital, two very different women give birth to two very similar daughters.
Hope leaves with a beautiful baby girl.
Anna leaves with empty arms.
Seventeen years later, the gods who keep watch over broken-hearted mothers wreak mighty revenge, and the truth starts rolling, terrible and deep, toward them all.
The power of mother-love will be tested to its limits.
Perhaps beyond . . .
Firstly lets just all discuss how fantastic Dawn is … am i right? Funny,warm,genuine and just one of Britain’s treasures. I treated myself to this for Christmas and it was an absolute delight to read especially in January and even more so a lockdown in January.
Can i say i see this as film or tv series.. i could visualise every page in my head.
It is a beautiful,life affirming and sensitive story. It is a story about motherhood first and foremost and the many forms of motherhood and the different emotions surrounding this responsbility. I resonated a lot with so many parts of this book.
Written in alternate narratives so we get a rich deep insight into all the characters.
Fantastic and cleverly written and will capture your heart.
Its a journey of love,loss, grief and hope. Thought provoking and you will question your moral compass many times throughout.
I loved every part of this book and highly recommend.
