Publisher's Summary

Harriet and Fletcher Tuke have worked hard to raise their children well. Daniel, the eldest son, has always accepted that his birth father died soon after he was born, and Fletcher has raised Daniel as his own.

But as Daniel comes of age and begins to fall in love with childhood friend Beatrice Hart, he can’t help but wonder about his heritage – his olive skin and dark eyes reminding him daily of the difference between him and his siblings, and between his and Beatrice’s families. Meanwhile, shocking truths about Fletcher’s own family line are suddenly brought to the surface, revealing a connection between the two families.

Daniel’s wish to learn about his bloodline takes him to Europe, where decisions about his future take shape. But will it be one he can share with Beatrice? And as Harriet hopefully awaits his return back home on the farm, she could never imagine that answers to questions about her own family are also just on the horizon.

If you enjoy books by Katie Flynn and Dilly Court, you'll love Val's heartwarming stories of triumph over adversity.

Every Mother’s Son

Val Wood, you always write such interesting stories and this one was brilliant - sad in parts but the whole book was lovely and read once again by my favourite narrator, Anne Dover. It was so easy to visualise the journey from England to Italy through the mountains and valleys- and such a lovely ending. I was going to ask if you would write a sequel and was surprised and pleased to hear what happened to all the characters - thank you.
