LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN’S PRIZE FOR FICTION

‘I absolutely loved Because of You. Fantastic, passionate, compassionate, so much wisdom, a lot of humour, very real and credible’ BERNARDINE EVARISTO, Booker Prize-winning author of Girl, Woman, Other’Gorgeous . .

. wise and full of love’ MARIAN KEYES__________

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 .

. . Because of You is the remarkably poignant story perfect for every Dawn French fan, told with her signature humour, warmth and so much love.
