The Truth about my Mother By Jemma Wallace

The Truth about my Mother By Jemma Wallace


All families have secrets, don’t they?

89-year-old Jeannette never meant to keep the truth from her family. But when a near fatal fall sends her to live with her granddaughter Amy, she finds herself revisiting a past that’s been hidden for too many years.

Amy, however, has always been good at keeping secrets. When ex-partner Nick shows up, she’s forced to admit that some things just can’t stay hidden forever.

Judith is starting from scratch – again. The master of reinvention, Amy’s mother has been seeking happiness in all the wrong places. This time though, she might just find it a lot closer to home than she ever believed she would…

As Jeannette’s 90th birthday party approaches, all three women discover they have more in common than they first thought, and the secrets from the past may be the key to unlocking the future.

My Thoughts:

I love how this book is set up into three parts with three women who all share their own stories. The book is centred around 1950’s to the present. What each of these women have been through will surprise and shock you but the author has dealt with the sensitive issues well. I find stories that have relatable issues in them more believable and may help some women who are going through things alone that there are other women out there that are dealing with the same issues. I think any parent that has to raise a child by themselves is incredible.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
