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.

Pixie N ,

Because of you - so so good!

Adored this book! I cried and laughed and loved my way through it .

Charlielou2311 ,

Couldn’t put it down.

Heartwarming, emotional, sad, happy .

Kathryn7853 ,

Absolutely awful

How anyone can describe this tale of child abduction as heart warming is insane to me. Child in effect held captive for 18 years and denied an affluent upbringing and original parents would have been aware of the heart issue. Hated every second and every character
