What to expect

From the author of the No. 1 bestseller WATCH OVER ME, over half a million copies sold, comes a heartwrenching, uplifting novel about a mother who’ll go to the ends of the earth to bring her grieving daughter back to life.

‘Daniela Sacerdoti is fast becoming one of my favourites: and here she has written another extraordinary and beautiful story’ The Sun on TAKE ME HOME

What do you do when your eight-year-old daughter starts telling you about her other mother, her other life? When she recalls events she never experienced, people she has never met?

This is what happens to Anna after her daughter Ava’s father disappears, leaving behind a devastated little girl. After three days of silence, Ava begins to share misty memories with her mother, and to draw pictures of a place she’s never visited. But a mother’s love goes beyond doubt and incredulity, and Anna knows that the only way to unravel the mystery is to find the place Ava is talking about – a tiny island called Seal. There, on the edge of the Atlantic, where their past and their future meet, there might just be a whole new world, a whole new life waiting for them…
