LoveReading View on Letters to My Daughters

The heartwarming new novel from the No. 1 Irish bestseller Emma Hannigan, author of The Wedding Promise, The Perfect Gift and the memoir All to Live For.

Letters to my Daughters will make you laugh and it will make you cry. This books tells the tale of three close knit sisters who have been devastated by the loss of one mother figure and are at the end of their tether with another. The loss of Nanny May profoudly effects Beatrice and twins Jeannie and Rose as well as Rose's daughter and their father. 

Their loss at the start of the novel is only the beginning of a series of lifechanging events for the whole family. Each of the daughters have their own secrets and their bond as sisters could be the only thing that will stop them from falling apart completely. Their mother, Martha, is struggling with retirement and Jim is the glue that holds the mother and daughters together. 

This book has as many funny moments as heartbreaking ones, and makes you realise the importance of family and doing what makes you happy. The author's acknowledgements at the end of the novel reinforces this and had me in tears. I would definately recommend that you read this book from cover to cover. 

Letters to My Daughters Synopsis

The new bestseller guaranteed to break your heart - and bring you joy... Her three girls were her world. It was time to let them know. To sisters Bea, Jeannie and Rose, the death of their beloved childhood nanny is a devastating loss. As the girls grew up, Nanny May had become so much more to them all: confidant, advocate, comforter, friend. In whom will they confide their hopes, fears and failures now she has gone? Especially now each sister needs a mother's wisdom more than ever... Martha cannot understand why her daughters are so upset about losing their childhood nanny. Yes, Martha was always in demand as a busy midwife, but that doesn't mean she loved her own children any less. But why don't the girls realise that? And has she left it too late to let them know...?
