9780141043128: Between a Mother and her Child

Elizabeth Noble, the No. 1 bestselling author of Things I Want My Daughters to Know and The Reading Group, takes a look at relationships within families in her heartbreaking novel Between a Mother and her Child.

For Maggie and Bill it was love at first sight . . .

One impulsive wedding later and with the arrival of three perfect children, Jake, Aly and Stan, the Barrett family seem to have it all. Until the day their world stops turning.

When Jake dies suddenly, they're swept away on a tide of grief that fractures Maggie and Bill's marriage. She and the children are left clinging to the wreckage of their family. And they need help, because in her grief Maggie is in danger of losing Aly and Stan too.

Enter Kate, housekeeper, companion and shoulder to cry on. She's here to pick up the pieces and fix what isn't completely broken. But can Maggie trust Kate? And why is Kate so keen to help?

When Bill falls for another woman, Maggie realizes she will have to fight to put her family back together - but will they still want her?

Let the storytelling magic of Elizabeth Noble capture your heart in Between a Mother and her Child.

Praise for Elizabeth Noble:

'Tissues are essential. You'll ricochet between delicately watering eyes at the romance of it all and howling sobs at the unbearable tenderness' Heat

'It would be a hard heart indeed that remained unmoved... the tender feelings that Noble engenders in her readers are to be cherished' Daily Express

Elizabeth Noble lives in New York and Surrey with her husband and two daughters. Her six previous novels, The Reading Group, The Friendship Test (formerly published as The Tenko Club), Alphabet Weekends, Things I Want My Daughters to Know, The Girl Next Door and The Way We Were, were all Sunday Times bestsellers, with The Reading Group reaching Number One.
