Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A very real Desperate Housewives story, MOTHERLAND is a witty yet moving novel that will appeal to every woman who's ever felt out-of-control . . .

Stay-at-home mum Fran Clarke is approaching both her thirty-seventh birthday and crisis point.

Once a brilliant voiceover artist, she now hasn't worked for years. The talent hasn't deserted her - only her self-belief.

She could have it all, if she could only see it. But with her confidence shot and a husband who no longer knows how to help her, most days all she sees is the bottom of a wine glass.
Fran knows she has to stop the downward spiral before she self-destructs completely. But she hits rock bottom when she realises she can't even solve the problems of her own two children. And if she thinks she's a hopeless flake, imagine what the other school-run mums think of her.

Being a mum can be hysterically funny. But it can also be heartbreakingly tough.

That's Motherland.
