Description

`Brilliant! Cuts to the heart yet powerfully uplifting' Jane Corry Her love for her daughter is everything Her love for him is deadly Cath had twenty-five perfect days with her newborn daughter before Mia's deadly illness was diagnosed. As her life implodes, Cath's despair drives her to a parental support group where she meets a father in a similar situation, the dangerously attractive Richard - charming, handsome and adamant that a cure for their children lies just over the horizon: everything Cath wants to believe. Their affair - and the chance to escape reality - is unavoidable, but carries catastrophic consequences: the nature of Mia's illness means that Cath's betrayal endangers not just her marriage but the life of her baby. Can she stop herself before it's too late?

About Author

Hannah Begbie studied Art History at Cambridge University. She went on to become a talent agent, representing BAFTA and Edinburgh Comedy Award-winning writers and comedians for fifteen years until her youngest son was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. In 2015 she joined the board of The Cystic Fibrosis Trust, to raise awareness and advocate for the CF community. She also enrolled in The Novel Studio course at City University, winning that year's new writing prize. The book she developed there became her debut novel, MOTHER, which later went on to win the Joan Hessayon Award for New Writers from the RNA. The TV rights were snapped up by Clerkenwell Films (Lovesick, Misfits) after a heated auction, with screenwriter Tom Edge (The Crown, Judy) attached. She lives in north London with her husband and their two sons.
