‘Uniquely witty, beautifully observed, intricately woven’ MIRANDA HART

‘A truly glorious life-affirming book, in which love, hope and friendship trump sorrow’ DINAH JEFFERIES

‘Worth every tear’ WOMAN & HOME

MEET EVA MARTÍNEZ-GREEN, AN ONLY CHILD FULL OF QUESTIONS ABOUT HER BEGINNINGS.

Between her emotionally absent mother and her physically absent father, there is nobody to answer them. Eva is convinced that all is not as it seems. Why are there no baby pictures of her? Why do her parents avoid all questions about her early years?

When her parents’ relationship crumbles, Eva begins a journey to find these answers for herself. Her desire to discover where she belongs leads Eva on a journey spanning decades and continents – and, along the way, she meets women who challenge her idea of what a mother should be, and who will change her life forever…

‘A glorious journey into loving & longing, rich with colour & warmth’ ANSTEY HARRIS

‘Heartrending and heartwarming’ CELIA ANDERSON

‘The most exquisitely written story of human love in all its forms’ JESSICA RYN

‘A deep delight of a book that vibrates with love and longing’ HELEN PARIS

Praise for Joanna Glen’s debut novel, The Other Half of Augusta Hope:

‘A therapeutic dose of high-strength emotion’ GUARDIAN

‘Entertains and moves in equal measure’ DAILY MAIL

‘Keep the tissues close’ GOOD HOUSEKEEPING

‘An irresistible message of redemption and belonging’ RED magazine

‘Heartening and hopeful’ JESS KIDD, author of Things in Jars

‘An extraordinary masterpiece’ ANSTEY HARRIS, author of The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton

Review

‘Honest, heartfelt and hopeful, All My Mothers captures the joy and pain of love in all its forms, and reminds us that mothers can be found in the most unlikely of places and people. It broke my heart three times, but I adored it!’ MARIANNE CRONIN, author of One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot

‘Mothers are artists – a beautiful sentiment from a beautiful book that challenges the notion of what a mother should look like. Eva is lost. She's sure her mother doesn't belong to her and, with her father absent, no one seems to have any answers – so she goes looking for them, on an epic journey that takes us to Cordoba in Spain. In a coming-of-age story, we feel the desire Eva has just to belong. Though it's not always an easy read, it is worth every tear’ Woman & Home

Praise for The Other Half of Augusta Hope:

’A joy…the humour and pathos in their stories lends real heart and soul’ OBSERVER

‘A moving tale… sure to make you cry… Parfait [is] a convincingly serious, sweet, clever and funny person who ends up carrying the story… an epic hero … It’s going to be all over every book club in Britain before you can say Burundi’ The Times

‘I found it both a mesmerisingly beautiful portrait of a young woman discovering what home means to her, and a poignant depiction of how our actions can touch other people's lives in ways we could never have anticipated. Augusta and Parfait are wonderful characters; I was willing them on to find the happiness and peace they both deserved’ Sarah Haywood, author of The Cactus

‘Without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read – an extraordinary masterpiece’ Anstey Harris, author of The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton

‘The most gutsy, endearing and entertaining meditation on the meaning of human existence that you're ever likely to read’ Deborah Orr
