One ordinary morning, Norah Wells walked out of her house on Willoughby Street and never looked back. Six years later, she returns to the home she left only to find another woman in her place. Fay held Norah’s family together after she disappeared, she shares a bed with Norah’s husband and Norah’s youngest daughter calls Fay ‘Mummy’.
Now that Norah has returned, everyone has questions. Where has she been? Why did she leave? And why is she back? As each member of the family tries to find the answers they need, they must also face up to the most pressing question of all – what happens to The Mother Who Stayed when The Mother Who Left comes back?
I was given an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. After reading Virginia’s previous novel What Milo Saw I was intrigued to read this one. This was a brilliant read with lots of twists and turns. I liked the fact that the chapters were short but also because each chapter was by a different person which kept it fresh but also I wanted to read on to find out what happened to each person. I really enjoyed this quirky tale of a very unusual family.
