Mother Can You Hear Me? by Margaret Forster

Book Description

Angela Bradbury's 'Poor Mother': delicate, humble, permanently disappointed, has made endless sacrifices for her family, for which they can never quite be grateful enough. 'You can't please your mother', as her father says. Even now, just one phone call from Mother can send Angela spiralling into guilt, self-recrimination and doubts over her own abilities as a mother. Worryingly, Angela's relationship with her own daughter Sadie seems to be going the same way, as Sadie develops into a sullen, unresponsive adolescent. It seems that motherhood is a heritage of disappointments and broken promises. But Angela is determined that, somehow, her relationship with Sadie will be different.

My Life in Houses by Margaret Forster My Life in Houses, Paperback (February 2016)

Takes you on a journey through the houses the author has lived in, from the sparkling new council house, to her beloved London home of today. This book is about what houses are to us, the effect they have on the way we live our lives and the changing nature of our homes.

Only one person knows what happened that day... Julia was the only person who knew what happened that day. But she didn't tell the police. And then it was too late. Now, years later, her secret looms large. Is it really too late? And if she does tell, can she bear the consequences?

Shadow Baby by Margaret Forster Shadow Baby, Paperback (January 2012)

Born in Carlisle in 1887, brought up in a children's home and by reluctant relatives, Evie, with her wild hair and unassuming ways, seems a quiet, undemanding child. Shona, born almost seventy years later, is headstrong and striking. But there are, as she discovers, unanswered questions about her past. The two girls have only one thing in common.
