About the Author

Esther Freud is the great-granddaughter of Sigmund Freud and the daughter of the painter Lucian Freud. She trained as an actress before writing her first novel. Her books have been translated into thirteen languages. She lives in London.


This exquisite family saga reads as a love letter between four generations of women. Everything is here; family ghosts, the bond between mothers and daughters, cruelty, endurance, the difficulty of love, and a faith in the possibility of healing - even after years of separation. This tender, elegant book delivers an emotional punch that left me in tears.--Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and Miss Benson's Beetle
This is such a powerful book--it unravels a deep tragedy in three miraculously entwined stories, in three different times, mothers and daughters linked by sorrow and love. It's a gently told story of harsh, harsh events--a mystery story of separation and sorrow that is finally resolved with truth and warmth, but with no punches pulled. It's a book about shame and the evil men do, but also about strength and the possibility of salvation in the face of one of the great scandals of the last century. --Richard Curtis, screenwriter of Yesterday and Love Actually
Braiding the lives of mothers and daughters in England and Ireland across three generations, Freud explores the joys, heartbreaks, and aching enigmas of family bonds...Freud's gifts for female empathy and fluid storytelling are fully evident in her ninth...the author's insight is apparent, both in her character studies and expression, as the ambiguity of the book's title demonstrates...A vivid, reliable saga of female experience.--Kirkus Reviews
Beautiful and insightful...As Freud delves into the three women's lives, the reader is taken on a journey of heartbreak as desperate actions taken to protect loved ones are revealed. This eloquent exploration of the ineffable ties between mothers and daughters delivers the goods.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
