Publisher's Summary

A sweeping family drama of old secrets and new beginnings....

Even happy families have their secrets....          

Since the sudden death of her husband, Naomi has steadily rebuilt the life they shared in the village of Tilsham by the sea.

Her eldest daughter, Martha, is sensible and determined - just like her father was - and very much in control of where her life is going. If she could just get pregnant with her husband, life would be perfect.

Willow, the youngest, was always more sunny and easy-going, yet drifted through life, much to her father’s frustration. But now, with charming new boyfriend Rick, she has a very good reason to settle down.

The three women are as close as can be. But there are things Naomi has kept from her daughters. Like the arrival of Ellis, a long-lost friend from way back, now bringing the fun and spark back into her life. And she’s certainly never told them that her marriage to their father wasn’t quite what it seemed….

The Sunday Times best-selling author Erica James returns with this gloriously compelling tale of mothers and daughters, secrets and love.

Critic Reviews

"Wise and warm with plenty of twists and turns, you'll love this engrossing family story." (Rachel Hore, Sunday Times best-selling author of A Beautiful Spy)

"Reading Mothers and Daughters is like enjoying a brand-new conversation with a much loved friend. Erica James' new novel is a delight, examining the lives, loves and aspirations of three women and those that love them. It's surprising and reassuringly wise, captivating and vivid, beautiful and authentic. I was fully invested in Naomi, Martha and Willow's stories and rooting for them right to the end. Achingly wonderful, peerless storytelling with heart, soul and gentle wisdom - I adored this book." (Miranda Dickinson, Sunday Times best-selling author of Our Story)

"A brilliant read. A compelling family drama, full of twists and turns. Completely absorbing." (Sarah Morgan, Sunday Times best-selling author of The Christmas Escape)
