Description

From the author of Letters to My Daughters, this No.1 bestselling novel is a warm, heartfelt story of mothers and daughters, and the gift of love

When Roisin returned home from France to the seaside village of Ballyshore heartbroken, she threw herself into fulfilling her lifelong dream of running her own artisan cafe. Five years on, her love life is still on ice but Nourriture, her cafe and delicatessen, is thriving.
But then, on her thirtieth birthday, Roisin receives two pieces of unexpected news which shake her to her core: a letter from her birth mother, a woman she's never met, and some devastating news about her business.
Meanwhile, the one person Roisin has always turned to, her adoptive mum Keeley, is hiding her own secret.
The two women must face truths about the past. Will they discover that the gift of love between a mother and a daughter is the most precious gift of all?

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.
