Because of You
LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION
'I absolutely loved Because of You. Fantastic, passionate, compassionate, so much wisdom, a lot of humour, very real and credible' Bernadine Evaristo
Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock...midnight. As the old millennium turns into the new, two very different women give birth to two very similar daughters.
Hope leaves with a beautiful baby girl. Anna leaves with empty arms. Seventeen years later, the truth of that night starts rolling, terrible and deep, toward them all.
A reckoning is coming. Lives will collide. And mother-love will be tested.
Because Of You is Dawn French's stunning new novel, told with her signature humour, warmth and so much love.
