You Get That From Me

A novel by


A heartwarming and hilarious novel about family, stories and second chances - perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson, Lucy Diamond and Jill Mansell

You can't choose your family...

Stella thought she knew how her life would turn out. A stellar career, the perfect husband (not like her own good-for-nothing dad), two gorgeous children, a dog to take on muddy countryside walks. But here she is: forty, single, living with her mum
and grandmother, and trying to choose the ideal sperm donor out of a catalogue.

Bonnie might be an expert in genetics, but she knows there are some things you
shouldn't hand down to your children - like the secret of what really happened in her marriage forty years ago.

Florence has raised two generations of wonderful women in this house - but her life, and the story of her blissful marriage, are more complicated than she's ever admitted.

When all three women start writing down their stories for Stella's unborn child, the secrets and memories woven into the house begin to resurface. You can't choose your family - but maybe you can choose what you make of it...

Full of warmth, wisdom and laugh-out-loud humour, You Get That From Me is a story about love, mothers and daughters, and the unexpected paths that life can take us down.

'An absolute page-turner . . . no matter which path you choose, it's how you love that truly matters. A truly life-affirming read'
Sheila McClure, author of
The Break-Up Agency
