A holiday is coming at just the right time for three mothers and their daughters . . .

Mia hopes a week away with her youngest, Felicity, will bridge the gap she feels has grown since her only daughter left for college in Dublin.
Meanwhile Ava is desperate to convince her newly-engaged daughter Daisy that her forthcoming nuptials are a huge mistake. But why is she so against the marriage?
Greta has long accepted that she and her daughter Tally are very different people. The holiday was her husband’s plan to bring mother and daughter together. But will a week in the sun be enough for them to work through their differences?
As the mothers struggle to come to terms with their daughters growing up, they learn that loving someone means letting go – and always being there to pick up the pieces . . .


'A moving tale celebrating the bonds between women, Emma Hannigan beautifully captures the difficult and wondrous thing that is loving and learning to let go ... just a little. An excellent read'
