Because of You

Author(s): Dawn French

Fiction | Women's Prize for Fiction

 


Because Of You is Dawn French's stunning new novel, told with her signature humour, warmth and so much love.


Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock . . . midnight.

The old millennium turns into the new.

In the same hospital, two very different women give birth to two very similar daughters.

Hope leaves with a beautiful baby girl.

Anna leaves with empty arms.

Seventeen years later, the gods who keep watch over broken-hearted mothers wreak mighty revenge, and the truth starts rolling, terrible and deep, toward them all.

The power of mother-love will be tested to its limits. Perhaps beyond . . .
