Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock . . . midnight.

The old millennium turns into the new.
In the same hospital, two very different women give birth to two very similar daughters.
Hope leaves with a beautiful baby girl.
Anna leaves with empty arms.
Seventeen years later, the gods who keep watch over broken-hearted mothers wreak mighty revenge, and the truth starts rolling, terrible and deep, toward them all.
The power of mother-love will be tested to its limits.
Perhaps beyond . . .

Because of You
is the remarkably poignant story perfect for every Dawn French fan,
told with her signature humour, warmth and so much love.
