I loved The Godmothers by Monica McInerney and reviewed it here back in January to help celebrate the ebook. Today, The Godmothers is released in paperback by Welbeck and I’m thrilled that they have allowed me to offer a giveaway here on Linda’s Book Bag to celebrate. You’ll find details of that giveaway later in this post, but first let me tell you about The Godmothers.
The Godmothers is published by Welbeck and is available for purchase in all good bookshops and online including here.
Eliza Miller grew up in Australia as the only daughter of a troubled young mother, but with the constant support of her 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 her godmothers, now both based in the UK, prompts a leap into the unknown.
Within a fortnight, Eliza has swapped her predictable routine in Melbourne, for life in the middle of a complicated family in Edinburgh. There’s no rush 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. Her godmothers have long been waiting for her to ask about her mother’s mysterious life – and about the identity of the father she has never known. But even they are taken by surprise with all that Eliza discovers.
Just to remind you how much I loved The Godmothers, you’ll find my review here.
