Author(s): Sally Hepworth
Neva Bradley, a third-generation midwife, is determined to keep the details surrounding her own pregnancy - including the identity of the baby's father - hidden from her family and co-workers for as long as possible. Her mother, Grace, finds it impossible to let this secret rest, even while her own life begins to crumble around her. For Floss, Neva's grandmother and a retired midwife, Neva's situation thrusts her back 60 years in time to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter's - a secret which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all.
"This is women's fiction at its finest. Sally Hepworth has written a wonderfully satisfying story...touching, tender, and meticulously researched, giving the reader a fascinating window into the amazing world of midwifery." -Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies "With empathy and keen insight, Hepworth delivers a page-turning novel. This is a rare tale that weaves together the past and the present in a totally absorbing narrative. Hepworth illuminates one of the most important moments in a woman's life - when she becomes a mother - and spins a story that will hold you captivated until the end." -Emily Giffin, author of The One and Only
