The Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller: 'Moggach is at the height of her powers with this book' Sunday Times

'Unputdownable, fun and tender with characters that jump off the page. Perfection' Marian Keyes

'A cracking, crackling social comedy, with some brilliant observations about ageing and a devilish plot twist' The Times

From the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tulip Fever, a deliciously funny, poignant and wry novel, full of surprising twists and turns:

James is getting on a bit and needs full-time help. So Phoebe and Robert, his middle-aged offspring, employ Mandy, who seems willing to take him off their hands. But as James regales his family with tales of Mandy's virtues, their shopping trips and the shared pleasure of their journeys to garden centres, Phoebe and Robert sense something is amiss.

Then something extraordinary happens which throws everything into new relief, changing all the stories of their childhood - and the father - that they thought they knew so well.

Review:

Unputdownable, fun and tender with characters that jump off the page. Perfection (Marian Keyes)

Moggach is at the height of her powers with this book, which moves from a beautifully observed comedy of middle-class life to an immensely moving celebration of two imperfect marriages (Sunday Times)

A cracking, crackling social comedy with some brilliant people observations about ageing and a devilish plot twist (Robbie Millen The Times)

Moggach's latest is full of warmth and humour as well as blistering truths about the sorrowful threads that bind families (Daily Mirror)

This is a world full of charm, warmth and pitch-perfect humour, but it is also a world punctuated by Moggach's blistering truths on the tangled, sorrowful threads of resentment and disappointment that bind families together

(Sunday Express, S Mag)

Infuses the subject with her trademark humour and pathos, reshaping a societal dilemma into a family drama, by turns compelling and surprising - her nuanced characterisations make the subject matter really come alive (Hannah Beckerman Observer)

Moggach addresses an all too common nightmare with ruthless honesty and sublime wit - The Carer is one of the funniest novels I have read for ages (Kate Saunders The Times)

If you enjoyed THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, there's a chance you'll love the author's new novel even more. A heartwarming triumph (Woman & Home)

Wickedly, witty entertainment. Moggach is so very good at describing the ordinary, she transforms it into the unusual, shocking and fascinating. Behind the normality of people's lives there often lies an extraordinary story. It's this that Moggach tells with insight, acute observation of character and mordant humour. The Carer is an immediately relevant work, a fiction anchored in reality (Spectator)

Surprising, funny and certain to have more than one reader wincing in recognition (The i)
