              '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.

              For more than thirty years, Angela Gillespie has sent friends and family around the world an end-of-year letter titled 'Hello from the Gillespies'. It's always been cheery and full of good news. This year, Angela surprises herself - she tells the truth ...The Gillespies are far f...rom the perfect family that Angela has made them out to be. Her husband seems to be having a mid-life crisis. Her grown-up twins are having career meltdowns. Her third daughter, badly in debt, can't stop crying. And her ten-year-old son spends more time talking to his imaginary friend than to real ones. Without Angela, the family would fall apart. But when Angela is taken from them in a most unexpected manner, the Gillespies pull together - and pull themselves together - in wonderfully surprising ways ...From the bestselling author of The House of Memories comes a funny and heartfelt novel about miscommunication and mayhem in a family like no other. Praise for Monica McInerney: 'McInerney's skills at creating family sagas keep getting better.' The Age 'This is one of those rare books you could recommend to anyone and know that they will love it.' Australian Women's Weekly 'If you need more proof what a superior storyteller this author is, here it is.' West Australian 'A satisfying family drama ...McInerney writes with a deep respect for her characters ...a book written with humor and charm.' Kirkus' 'With deeply developed characters who will capture the heart, a plot that knows just when to twist and a cathartic marriage between the two protagonists, McInerney's novel is worth every page.' Romantic Times 'With warmth, vivid characters, and a sharp eye toward observing twenty-first century life, Monica McInerney isn't just one of my favorite writers from down under, but from anywhere.' Sally Koslow, author of The Widow Waltz
