A compelling family drama * Heat * A heartbreaking tale of love and family, this is a truly compelling story * Closer * A compulsive and moving read about motherhood * Good Housekeeping * If you've sold over 10 million books, you've either worked at Waterstones for a very long time or you're something of a literary phenomenon.
