Dawn French's novel is a complete tearjerker, exploring the nature of mother-daughter relationships and family, the sacrifices a mother will make, the heartache, the grief and the loss. I was shocked to find myself listening to a ‘live’ depiction of a still birth in the first few chapters. Whilst well enough written, I found it incredibly insensitive that there’s absolutely no reference to this in any of the blurb.

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 . . .
