Sophie and Mandy, Anna and Laura - two daughters and two mothers and a story about the bond of motherly love.

Sophie is a happy 18-year-old living in London with Anna, her Irish mother. Anna has devoted her life to Sophie. It may be just the two of them - no father nor grandparents, no uncles nor aunts - but Anna has more than enough love to give. Sophie has everything she could ever need.

Laura is a not-so-happy artist. She too has a daughter, Mandy. But Laura is haunted by the loss of her first child, Jody. Happy-go-lucky as she is, Mandy lives in Jody's shadow and wonders why her mother can never let go.

Both mothers carry secrets in their hearts and cannot forget the day their paths crossed. But a chance discovery is about to bring everything into the open and mothers and daughters, love and lies, past and future, will spectacularly collide . . .

Praise for Sinéad Moriarty:

'The inevitable comparison with Marian Keyes are justified and well deserved – Moriarty's characters are likeable, well developed and funny.' Heat

'Well-drawn characters you can't fail to care about and plenty of laughs along the way. Double thumbs up.' Daily Mail

'If standard chick lit is a fast-food burger, then this is a Kobe steak: the same basic ingredients and idea, but delivered to much higher quality and far more satisfying.' thebookbag.co.uk
