Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock . . . midnight. The old millennium turns into the new.
In the same hospital, 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 gods who keep watch over broken-hearted mothers wreak mighty revenge, and the truth starts rolling, terrible and deep, toward them all. The power of mother-love will be tested to its limits. Perhaps beyond .
. . Because of You is the remarkably poignant story perfect for every Dawn French fan, told with her signature humour, warmth and so much love.
