Dear Mother – Angela Marsons 4/5

Thank you to Netgalley and Bookoture for an ARC of Dear Mother in return for an honest review.Dear Mother is a harrowing yet compelling read, telling the story of 3 sisters, Catherine, Alex and Beth.

The sisters were estranged following years of abuse at the hands of their mother and this book tells of the impact that their childhood had on each of them as well as the story of them coming back together.

This is not my usual choice of genre to read and it is certainly different from Angela’s Kim Stone series but despite this I loved this book – though given the subject matter I’m not sure loved is the most appropriate word to use, it haunted me and I found myself drawn to each of the sisters as their story unfolds. It’s not an easy read and nor should it be – but it will touch you emotionally as you take the journey with the sisters.

Highly recommended
