Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Cat, Fen and Pip of her earlier books come together for a fab read that does not require knowledge of the previous books to throughly enjoy. It's excellent and fans of Daisy Waugh and Belinda Jones will love it.

If you like Freya North you might also like to read books by Maggie Alderson, Marian Keyes and Belinda Jones.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Home Truths by Freya North

Brought up by their eccentric uncle Django, the McCabe sisters had assumed their mid-thirties would be a time of happiness and stability.

The youngest, Cat, returns home from four years abroad, to start a new phase of her life. Easy - or so she thinks.

Fen, the middle sister, is determined to be a better mother to her baby daughter than her own was to her - but might this be at the expense of her love-life?

And is the eldest, Pip, too busy taking care of her stepson, her husband, her sisters, her uncle - to notice her own needs?

At Django's 75th birthday party, secrets are revealed that will change how the three sisters view their family forever. Heart and home, previously intertwined, are shattered and identities called into question.

What do you do when you find out that your sisters aren't quite your sisters?
