'I don't want two wishy-washy godmothers,' Jeannie had said that day in the country hospital when Eliza was only a day old. 'No dolls. No pink dresses. Just lots of adventures. Lots of spoiling. The pair of you like two mighty warriors protecting her at every step.' Eliza Miller ...grew up in Australia as the only daughter of a troubled single mother, but with the constant support of two watchful godmothers, Olivia and Maxie. Despite her tricky childhood, she always felt loved and secure. Until, just weeks before her eighteenth birthday, the tragic death of her mother changed everything. Thirteen years on, Eliza is deliberately living a life as safe as possible, avoiding close relationships and devoting herself to her job - until one day an unexpected invitation from her godmothers, now both based in the UK, prompts a leap into the unknown. Within a fortnight, Eliza has swapped her predictable routine in Melbourne for life in the middle of a complicated family in Edinburgh. There's no such thing as an ordinary day any more. Yet, amidst the chaos, Eliza begins to blossom. She finds herself not only hopeful about the future, but ready to explore her past. Her godmothers have long been waiting for her to ask about her mother's mysterious life - and about the identity of the father she has never known. But even they are taken by surprise with all that Eliza discovers. Set in Australia, Scotland, Ireland and England, THE GODMOTHERS is a story about love, loss, hope and sorrow, about the families we are born into and the families we make for ourselves.
