Publisher's Summary

Three women, one girl and the vow that binds them.

Alice and her daughter Zoe have been a team of two all their lives. They've never needed anyone else - until Alice gets sick.

Alice reaches out to two near-strangers: Kate, her oncology nurse, and Sonja, her social worker. As the lives of the three women become inextricably tied, a chain of events is set into motion, forcing them to confront their deepest fears and secrets.

Imbued with heart and humour in even the darkest moments, The Mother's Promise is an unforgettable novel about the strength of a mother's love.
