You can't choose your family...

From the Sunday Times bestselling author Kitty Neale comes an emotional family saga about two women whose bravery and kinship will see them through the toughest times.

Previously published in 2011

CRUEL When her beloved Gran has a stroke, Sally and her family move back home to look after her. But Sadie's illness has made the wise woman they once knew bigoted and bad-tempered. Sadie is testing everyone's patience, including Sally's mum Ruth, and Sally's husband Arthur.

CALLOUS Their problems are nothing compared with Tommy, the little ruffian next door. With an absentee father and an alcoholic mother, Tommy has a hard life. However, Ruth sees the good in him and takes him under her wing, but his unpredictable and violent mother has other ideas.

CRISIS Meanwhile, the stress of living cheek-by-jowl with Sally's family is starting to push Arthur away. As cracks in their marriage begin to appear, both Sally and Arthur must decide where their priorities lie before it's too late...

A heartbreaking historical novel about women, friendship, family and hope. Perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries, Diney Costeloe and Dilly Court.
