From the best-selling author of Hello from the Gillespies and The House of Memories comes a warm and captivating story of family secrets, traditions and ties.
As a child Maggie Faraday grew up in a lively, unconventional household in Tasmania, with her young mother, four very different aunts and eccentric grandfather. With her mother often away, all four aunts took turns looking after her - until, just weeks before Maggie's sixth birthday, a shocking event changed everything.
Twenty years on Maggie is living alone in New York City when a surprise visit from her grandfather brings a revelation and a proposition to reunite the family. As the Faradays gather in Ireland, Maggie begins to realise that the women she thought she knew so intimately have something to hide.
Those Faraday Girls is a rich and complex story full of warmth, humour and unforgettable women. Spanning several countries and 30 years, it is a deeply moving novel about family secrets and lies and how the memories that bind us together can also keep us apart.
"Past secrets and sibling rivalry and he meat in this enthralling tale." (Woman & Home)
"A page turning story about sibling rivalry, which is accessible and deep." (The Irish Independent)

The Faraday sisters & Leo
A warming family saga
Yes. After the first half-hour I began to warm to the characters and wanted to know what would happen to them
Maggie, once she was an adult; coping well with having five mothers! Leo, too, although his character was the least developed.
No. I thought her efforts at Mancunian and Irish accents were awful, as was her pronunciation of Donegal. She could have tried to make each sister sound a bit different, but her reading was not bad enough to spoil the story.
I would have liked to have heard more about Tessa, who appeared as a very unlikeable character and I would have liked to have learned more about Leo.
