Slowly she started to pierce together the facts and fictions of her childhood to get to the truth, so long hidden between her own mother and her mother's sister.

Synopsis

Secrets My Mother Kept What If Everything You Knew About Yourself Was a Lie? by Kath Hardy

Kath grew up on a vast council estate in the 1950s, the second youngest of ten children. The two most important people in young Kath's life were her charismatic but manipulative mother Flo and her mother's sister Aunty. But Flo and Aunty were keeping secrets, a tapestry of lies that cast a harrowing shadow over the children's lives. Many years later Kath's mother died and while sorting through Flo's things, Kath discovered a bundle of secret letters that sent her on a journey to finally unravel the truth...Inspirational and moving, this is the story of a women brave enough to confront her past, and strong enough to let love not bitterness define her.

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Emma Caddick

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

Jill Peters

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!
