Sheila O'Flanagan's MY MOTHER'S SECRET is a thought-provoking and unputdownable novel about a family reeling from the news that nothing about their parents' marriage is what they believed it to be. A wonderful read perfect for fans of Veronica Henry and Lisa Jewell.

When Steffie helps her two siblings organize a surprise wedding anniversary party for their parents her only worry is whether they'll be pleased. What she doesn't know is this is the day that her whole world will be turned upside down.

Jenny wants to be able to celebrate her ruby anniversary with the man she loves, but for forty years she has kept a secret. A secret that she can't bear to hide any longer. But is it ever the right time to hurt the people closest to you?

As the entire family gather to toast the happy couple, they're expecting a day to remember. The trouble is, it's not going to be for the reasons they imagined...

    Easy read Irish family story. Got this for free so wasn’t expecting too much but thoroughly enjoyed it!
  • Heart wrenching, heart warming and at times, heart breaking

    By Cheffybutcher
    From beginning to end, this heart felt novel unravels the ironies, frailties and complexities of ‘family’ and belonging to one despite the cracks. It is written with some measure of sophistication, switching, from character perspectives whilst still by and large drawing back to the two central characters exploring the depth of love and forgiveness between mother and daughter. A great rainy day, cup-of-tea-in-bed read that is very relatable despite the occasional cliches. It could very easily be a successful film in similar vain to Love Actually or Bridget Jones.
