Mum & Dad
A Richard & Judy Book Club pick, Mum & Dad is a heartwarming family drama from number one bestseller Joanna Trollope, with all her trademark wit and wisdom.
What happens when family roles are reversed and the children must look after mum and dad?
It’s been twenty-five years since Gus and Monica left England to start a new life in Spain, building a wine business from the ground up. However, when Gus suffers a stroke and their idyllic Mediterranean life is thrown into upheaval, it’s left to their three grown-up children in London to step in . . .
As the children descend on the vineyard, it becomes clear that each has their own idea of how best to handle their mum and dad, as well as the family business. But as long-simmering resentments rise to the surface and tensions reach breaking point, can the family ties prove strong enough to keep them together?
