This Family by Kate Sawyer

Look out this second novel from the author of The Stranding, out 9th May 2023. She tackles complicated family drama with a light hand. This rich, detailed story is set across one day but encompasses decades. You will be gutted to leave the characters behind on the last page.





From the Back:


It is my dearest wish, that after so long apart, I am able to bring this family together for my wedding day.


This house. This family.


Mary has raised a family in this house. Watched her children play and laugh and bicker in this house. Today she is getting married in this house, with all her family in attendance.


The wedding celebrations have brought fractured family together for the first time in years: there's Phoebe and her husband Michael, children in tow. The young and sensitive Rosie, with her new partner. Irene, Mary's ex-mother-in-law. Even Emma, Mary's eldest, is back for the wedding - despite being at odds with everyone else.


Set over the course of an English summer's day but punctuated with memories from the past forty years of love and loss, hope and joy, heartbreak and grief, this is the story of a family. Told by a chorus of characters, it is an exploration of the small moments that bring us to where we are, the changes that are brought about by time, and what, despite everything, stays the same.
