My Mother’s Daughter by Ann O’Loughlin

The Blurb

County Wicklow, Ireland. Margo has just lost her husband Conor and is grieving his passing, unsure how she and her daughterElsa will survive without him. Then she receives a letter that turns everything she thought she knew on its head. Not only has she lost her husband, but now Margo fears she could lose her daughter as well.

Ohio, United States. Cassie has just split from her husband acrimoniously. Upset and alone she does not know how to move forward. Then her ex-husband demands a paternity test for their daughter Tilly and sorrow turns to anger as Cassie faces the frightening possibility of losing her daughter.

A powerful, moving story of family, resilience and compassion, and how women support each other through the most difficult times. My Mother’s Daughter takes the issues closest to our hearts and makes us ask ourselves the most difficult questions – what would we do in Margo and Cassie’s place?

What I Thought

This was the first book by the author I have read and I was very impressed. I did not want to put this one down and I loved her warmth and compassionate style of writing.

The story definitely tugged at the heartstrings and covered a wide range of topics from divorce to grief to serious illness but the overwhelming themes were those of a mother’s love and the strength of female friendship for me.

I really enjoyed this story and raced through it, desperate to pick it up whenever I could and I think most readers will feel the same. Will be keeping an eye out for more from this author.

Where To Buy


I think the two books I have reviewed this week have similar central themes of ‘a mother’s love’. Did you read the review on Monday of Shari Low’s new book? Check it out here
