  • "This is women's fiction at its finest ... a wonderfully satisfying story ... touching, tender, and meticulously researched" Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies and The Husband's Secret

    From the New York Times bestselling author of The Good Sister and The Mother-in-Law with new novel The Younger Wife out now.

    In a family of midwives, some secrets are too big to keep hidden ...

    Neva Bradley, a third-generation midwife, is determined to keep the details surrounding her own pregnancy - including the identity of the baby's father - hidden from her family and co-workers for as long as possible.
    Her mother, Grace, cannot let this secret rest, even while her own life begins to crumble around her.

    For Floss, Neva's grandmother and a retired midwife, Neva's situation thrusts her back 60 years in time to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter's - a secret which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all.


    "a page-turner, told with great empathy" Weekly Times

    "Hepworth's skilful storytelling means past and present flow seamlessly ... heartwarming." Herald Sun

    "Enchanting ... Hepworth's skilful storytelling means past and present flow seamlessly ... it's easy to lose yourself in the lives of the three, strong female protagonists." Daily Telegraph

    "Hepworth illuminates one of the most important moments in a woman's life - when she becomes a mother - and spins a story that will hold you captivated until the end" Emily Giffin, author of The One and Only
