The Queen of Bloody Everything Summary

The Queen of Bloody Everything by Joanna Nadin

Joanna Nadin's first novel for adults, The Queen of Bloody Everything, is about mothers, daughters and how we can make many choices in life but can't choose where we come from.

As Edie Jones lies in a bed on the fourteenth floor of a Cambridge hospital, her adult daughter Dido tells their story, starting with the day that changed everything.

That was the day Dido - aged exactly six years and twenty-seven days old - met the next door neighbours and fell in love.

Because the Trevelyans were exactly the kind of family Dido dreamed of.
