This book is in very tidy condition.

In 1984 two young mothers meet at a toddler group in Birmingham. As their friendship grows, they share with each other the difficulties and secrets in their lives.

Joanne, A sweet, shy girl, is increasingly afraid of her husband. The lively, promising man she married has become hostile and violent and she is too ashamed to tell anyone. When Joanne's mother, Margaret, is suddenly rushed into hospital, the bewildered family find that there are things about their mother of which they had no idea. Margaret was evacuated from Birmingham as a child and has spent years avoiding the pain of her childhood.

Sooky has already been through one disastrous marriage and is back at home living with her parents. Being disgraced is not easy. Her mother, Meena, refuses to speak to her. At first her silence seems like a punishment, but Sooky gradually realizes it contains emotions which are far more complicated and that her mother may need her help.

This is the story of two young women discovering the heartbreak of their mothers' lives, and of how mothers create daughters- and learn from them.
