I found it interesting that Elizabeth Noble said she didn't really relate to the daughters in her story.


Her interest began with learning about her own mother's loss of her mother in her early twenties. This had a profound effect upon her mother.

I thought it was interesting hearing her talk about the relief that Hannah feels after her mom dies and what she does with that (like spending time with her dad when she couldn't do that before due to the illness). I imagine that is exactly how some people feel and she captures that really well.

I would love to win a copy of these two books! Thanks so much!


I enjoyed listening to Elizabeth Noble relate how leaving the U.K. and her family was on her mind so she felt that this book was important to write. The mother daughter relationship was meaningful to her and to her own mother.

Martha@Hey, I want to read that

I lost my mother very early as well (just before my teens) and I know when my children were young I worried what they would know from and of my should I not be there. Recently one of the children I watch lost her father and she is only 2. I was surprised how much the loss effected me when I think of what his little girl has lost. I think I would find this book very powerful. Thanks for the great interview.

I cant wait to read this book. The bond between a mother and daughter is so profound to shape a story around. I think it will be interesting to read the different ways each of the daughters react to their grief and loss of their mother.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
