Dawn French talks to Miranda Sawyer

Because of You

Winter Weekend 2020, 

In a maternity ward on the first day of the new millennium, two very different couples, two very different mothers, await their new arrivals, neither aware that a split second decision will entwine the rest of their lives, and forever alter what they had imagined motherhood would bring. Because of You is about mothers and daughters, love and loss, mistakes and regrets and the family bonds that make us who we are.

This is writer, comedian and actor Dawn French’s fourth novel, following on from A Tiny Bit Marvellous, Oh Dear Silvia and According to Yes. Miranda Sawyer is a journalist and broadcaster
