From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You, the basis for the major motion picture, comes the touching, unforgettable story of three generations of Irish women faced with the fundamental truths of love, duty, and the unbreakable bond that unites mothers and daughters.
Estranged from her mother since she ran away from her rural Irish home as a young woman, Kate swore a future oath that she’d always be a friend to her daughter, Sabine. But history has a way of repeating itself, and Kate now faces an ever-widening chasm between herself and her daughter. With Sabine about to make her own journey to Ireland to see the grandmother Kate abandoned, Kate is left wondering how they ever made it here, and what she can do to close the gap between them.
For Joy, seeing her granddaughter is a dream come true. After the painful separation from Kate, she’s looking forward to having time with Sabine. Yet almost as soon as the young woman arrives, the lack of common ground between them deflates her enthusiasm. And when Sabine’s impetuous, inquisitive nature forces Joy to face long-buried secrets from her past, she realizes that perhaps it’s time to finally heal old wounds.
“This perceptive…novel does the mother-and-daughter thing in page-turning style.”–Elle

Sheltering Rain

Jojo Moyes is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Still Me, After You, Me Before You, The Horse Dancer, Paris for One and Other Stories, One Plus One, The Girl You Left Behind, The Last Letter from Your Lover, Silver Bay, and The Ship of Brides. She lives with her husband and three children in Essex, England.

Loosely based on the story of her own grandparents, Sheltering Rain is the impressive debut of U.K. author Jojo Moyes. Joy and her husband, edward, meet during coronation festivities in Hong Kong in 1953. Forty years later, they are living on a ramshackle Irish estate, where edward’s health is rapidly declining. Their spunky granddaughter Sabine arrives and is at first miserable in the grim surroundings. Weeks later, she is followed by her flighty mother, Kate, from whom Joy has been estranged for years. There are plenty of fireworks among the three and the strong supporting cast as old secrets come to the surface in this absorbing family drama. National advertising.

Tempestuous mother-daughter relationships, with their psychologically rich undertones of repressed jealousy, transparent contempt, and perceived disapproval, form the crux of Moyes’ accomplished debut novel. Set in a remote Irish village, and mining the popular “my mother never understood me” genre with a potent and provocative tale of three generations of Ballantyne women, Moyes’ tale reveals with empathic sensitivity the heavy emotional baggage burdening each woman. There’s Sabine, a headstrong, petulant, and typically resentful teenager, perpetually at odds with her mother, Kate, a thirtysomething woman whose self-image is measured by a string of disastrous love affairs, and who is troubled by an equally strained relationship with her own mother, Joy, the matriarch whose rigid reserve safeguards painful personal and family secrets. Comparisons to Maeve Binchy and Rosamunde Pilcher will be inevitable and not altogether undeserved, and in style and substance Moyes is a worthy addition to their ranks. Fluidly paced and cast with engaging characters, Moyes’ book offers escapist entertainment in the best tradition of those masters of British Isles domestic fiction. Carol Haggas
