Summary

Heartwarming storytelling with strong themes of sisterhood from nation's favourite and former Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, this is Little Women meets Marian Keyes Walsh - a family series for a new generation of readers.

The four Amir Sisters - Fatima, Farah, Bubblee and Mae - are as close as sisters can be, but sometimes even those bonds can be pushed to their limits.... 

Becoming a mother has always been Farah's dream, so when older sister Fatima struggles with a tough pregnancy whilst Farah has trouble conceiving, she can't help but be jealous - until a plan to break a huge cultural taboo in her family and use a surrogate gives her renewed hope. But nothing is ever that easy in this warm, witty look at a modern British family.
