Summary

County Wicklow, Ireland. Margo has just lost her husband, Conor, and is grieving his passing, unsure how she and her daughter, Elsa, will survive without him. Then she receives a letter that turns everything she thought she knew on its head. Not only has she lost her husband, but now Margo fears she could lose her daughter as well.    

Ohio, United States. Cassie has just split from her husband acrimoniously. Upset and alone, she does not know how to move forward. Then her ex-husband demands a paternity test for their daughter, Tilly, and sorrow turns to anger as Cassie faces the frightening possibility of losing her daughter.    

Powerful, moving stories of family, resilience and compassion and how women support each other through the most difficult times, My Mother's Daughter takes the issues closest to our hearts and makes us ask ourselves the most difficult question - what would we do in Margo and Cassie's place?

"It's a heart-warming story...but also an addictive page-turner with plenty of unexpected twists and reveals in store." (Reader's Digest)  

"Deftly written, moving and courageous." (The Sunday Times)  

"Slow-marching, romantic prose draws us into an old world that is rustic, genteel, quaint...[but] scandals lie in wait." (Irish Independent)
