Summary:

'Dazzling. Intense and gritty at times, sparkling and hilarious at others. I found it absorbing, witty, joyous and moving...and that's all I really want from a book!' - JO BRAND
Little India, East London: Shyama, aged forty-four, has fallen for a younger man. They want a child together.
Meanwhile, in a rural village in India, young Mala, trapped in an oppressive marriage, dreams of escape.
When Shyama and Mala meet, they help each other realise their dreams. But will fate guarantee them both happiness?...
Brimming with warmth, wit and indignation, Meera Syal immerses us in a devastating story of friendship, family and the lengths women will go to have a child. THE HOUSE OF HIDDEN MOTHERS is her long-awaited third novel and shows Meera Syal at the height of her literary powers

THE HOUSE OF HIDDEN MOTHERS is her long-awaited new novel.

'Brilliant. It is destined to be a bestseller. There is so much in it too. Beautiful writing, human frailty, love, vanity, friendship - but most importantly the shocking reminder of how woman are abused the world over.' - ESTHER FREUD

    Wow - what a delightful book this is. I know I will listen more than once! Fast paced with believable well rounded characters, this book pulls you between Delhi, rural India and England as we follow a family through surrogacy, a grueling court case, the troubles of a young woman trying to find her way. I loved every moment and learned so much about surrogacy and life in India. Totally real and believable. The work is well written and really engaging. The authors brilliant narration is a bonus. A great read.
