Description

AN UPLIFTING, HEART-WRENCHING STORY OF THE UNBREAKABLE TIES BETWEEN A MOTHER AND HER DAUGHTER FROM NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR BARBARA DELINSKY

'Fans of Jodie Picoult will love this.' Daily Express

'Warm, rich, textured and impossible to put down.' Nora Roberts

On paper, Jamie MacAfee's life is perfect. She loves her fiancee, she's happy with her plans for the future and she gets to work alongside her beloved mother, Caroline, on their family home renovation show.

In reality, she can't seem to make herself set a wedding date and an ageist, sexist decision by their TV network has thrown both her job and her relationship with Caroline into jeopardy. Meanwhile Caroline, who has been painfully putting herself back together after a difficult divorce, is watching the plans she's built her life around go up in flames.

As loyalties shift and new relationships tempt, Jamie and Caroline will be tested as never before. Yet when all is said and done, there's nothing quite like the bond of family.

'A poignant family story.' Daily Express

'Delinsky's writing is fluid and makes for a hard-to-put-down book.' Glamour

Review quote

Jamie MacAfee's life is almost perfect. She loves her fiancée, even if she hasn't quite worked out why she won't set a wedding date and she certainly adores her job, working as an architect on their family home renovation show. Meanwhile, her beloved mother Caroline has built up her confidence after a painful divorce, working closely alongside her daughter as the very successful host of Gut It!. Everything is going to plan, until the lives of both women are changed overnight.

When the TV network plan to replace Caroline with Jamie as the show's host, Caroline is left feeling horribly betrayed - and old in the eyes of the world. Then tragedy strikes, leaving Jamie guardian to her small orphaned step-brother and fiancée to a man who doesn't want the child.

As the blueprints they've built their lives around go up in flames, loyalties shift and new relationships tempt. Jamie and Caroline must decide what they really want - and discover where their future lies . . .
