Publisher Description

The highly anticipated new family drama from one of Australia's most beloved authors.

Eliza Miller grew up in Australia as the only daughter of a troubled young mother, but with the constant support of two watchful godmothers, Olivia and Maxie. Despite her tricky childhood, she always felt loved and secure. Until, just before her eighteenth birthday, a tragic event changed her life.

Thirteen years on, Eliza is deliberately living as safely as possible, avoiding close relationships and devoting herself to her job. Out of the blue, an enticing invitation from one of her godmothers prompts a leap into the unknown.

Within a fortnight, Eliza finds herself in the middle of a complicated family in Edinburgh. There’s no such thing as an ordinary day any more. Yet, amidst the chaos, Eliza begins to blossom. She finds herself not only hopeful about the future, but ready to explore her past, including the biggest mystery of all – who is her father?

Set in Australia, Scotland, Ireland and England, THE GODMOTHERS is a great big hug of a book that will fill your heart to bursting. It is a moving and perceptive story about love, lies, hope and sorrow, about the families we are born into and the families we make for ourselves.

Fabulous

An Australian main character, tick. A story with lots of twists, believable twists. Couldn’t put it down, read through to 5 in the morning!

Just wanted to keep reading

I didn’t want this book to end it was so captivating and easy to read. I wish it had a sequel.

Engaging story - most enjoyable

This is what I would call a “quick read” - by that I don’t mean that it’s pulp fiction - I mean that it has a flowing narrative, interesting characters and it kept me engaged - in fact it is now 4.45 am and I am only just about to lay down and get some sleep.
