Is it always mother, like daughter?
It’s 1981 and eleven-year-old Sadie adores her beautiful and vibrant mother, Connie, whose dreams of making it big as a singer fill their small Leeds house. It’s always been the two of them — until the unthinkable happens.
Jean hasn’t seen her good-for-nothing daughter Connie since she ran away eleven years ago from their home in Harlow – or as the neighbours affectionately call it – Pram Town.
But in the wake of the Royal Wedding, Jean gets a life-changing call: could she please come and collect the granddaughter she's never met?
We all know how Charles and Di turned out, and Jean and Sadie are hardly a match made in heaven – but is there hope of a happy ending for them?
Written in Joanna Nadin’s trademark dazzling prose, The Talk of Pram Town tells the story of three generations of Earnshaws, the secrets that shaped their decisions, and how, if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got . . .
