About this deal

I knew what Hope had done was so wrong and on many levels evil, but I also couldn’t help feeling sorry for her. I think this story broke me, but in a beautiful good way, it’s a complete tearjerker, it looks at the nature of relationships and family, a mother’s love, her emotions, it’s full of heartache, grief loss, but it’s absolutely beautiful, it’s happy as well as sad, don’t want to put anyone off , it’s full of forgiveness and the most important things, full of hope and love. I try not to be so negative about books but really feel that this was only published because it was by Dawn French.

Dawn French describes her book, Because of You as a love letter to her daughter, step-daughter and mother. Because Of You is Dawn French's stunning new novel, told with her signature humour, warmth and so much love. The profound effect on Anna was so trivialised, and I wonder if this was a whack at "white privelege". Hope and Minne become more than just mother and daughter, they are inseparable and are best friends, talking about everything under the sun and creating their own secret language. Opis zaproponował mi: "In the same hospital, two very different women give birth to two very similar daughters.I was really intrigued by the premise and had high hopes but I wasn’t vaguely moved by it, the jokey narrative seemed to jar with the subject matter. I heard Dawn French being interviewed about this book, and she was articulate, interesting and engaging.

What you need to know: the plot is tired, the characters are two dimensional, and there is no accountability. Bottom line here is, the author stripped the story of all complexity by manipulating her characters in a way that fit her agenda.

I had no sympathy for the wrongdoers despite the author’s best efforts to reward them at every turn. The story then focusses mainly on the mother-daughter relationship as baby Minnie grows into womanhood and finds herself pregnant at 17.
