Description

Happily married Ava and her daughter Daisy have always had the same outlook on life. Marriage (to the right guy) and babies. But when Daisy begins to question her life choices, Ava is forced to examine her own.
Independent widow Mia and her eighteen-year-old daughter Felicity have always been close. Until Felicity moves to Dublin and starts a relationship with a man ten years her senior.
Image-conscious, diet-obsessed Greta and her daughter Tally could not be more different. But mothers and daughters can love each other without actually liking each other, right?
As each of the daughters finds her own path in life, the women must confront the new dynamics in their relationships. And a holiday in Spain provides just the opportunity to discover whether growing up really has to mean growing apart . . .

About Emma Hannigan

Emma Hannigan was the beloved and bestselling author of thirteen novels, including the No.1 bestseller Letters to My Daughters.
Her bestselling memoir Talk to the Headscarf was updated and revised as All To Live For: Fighting Cancer. Finding Hope.
In 2007 Emma was diagnosed with breast cancer and her eleven-year battle with cancer began. As an ambassador for Breast Cancer Ireland Emma worked to dispel the fears around cancer and spread hope about new treatments. In February 2018 Emma shared that her team of dedicated doctors had exhausted all avenues in terms of her treatment. She launched a social media campaign #HelpEmmaHelpOthers to raise EURO100,000 for Breast Cancer Ireland. Two weeks later, shortly before her death, Emma's target had been reached. In the final months of her life, Emma completed her thirteenth novel, The Gift of Friends, sending her acknowledgements to her editor just days before she passed away.
