Three Mothers

Book - 2008
Rate this:
A lyrical debut that explores the complexities of mother-daughter relationships and long-buried secrets from post-war Europe to modern-day London.

At twenty-five, Susie is all grown up, working a job that pays the bills and living with her long-term boyfriend in their own apartment-better yet, she's hours away from her childhood home. But her mother's sudden cancer diagnosis forces Susie to reconcile a daughter's memories of her mother with the reality of a woman approaching death. Determined to understand the unexplained silences between her mother and grandmother before it's too late, Susie confronts the secrets that have become embedded in her family's past. Between stories of betrayals and births emerges an engaging narrative that explores women's disparate roles of mother, lover, and independent spirit; and what happens to the generations of women who are all three.
