All My Mothers by Joanna Glen

£8.99

Bookseller Review by Valerie:

‘All My Mothers by Joanna Glen   At the heart of this compelling novel is the city of Córdoba in Andalusia, both in its rich history and  its vibrant  contemporary culture. The narrator is Eva, an unloved, un-mothered child who instinctively looks for warm and loving connections while trying to make sense of her own abandonment. Her personal journey is unpredictable and fascinating showing us that we can be truly loved or indeed failed, quite unexpectedly. Eva’s voice is funny, clever and wise so it’s a great pleasure to read.’

MEET EVA MARTINEZ-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…
