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 Dawn French's stunning new novel, told with her signature humour, warmth and so much love.
