Publisher's Summary

Award-winning writer Graham Swift returns with his profoundly moving new novel, Mothering Sunday.
It is March 30th 1924. It is Mothering Sunday. How will Jane Fairchild, orphan and housemaid, occupy her time when she has no mother to visit? How, shaped by the events of this never to be forgotten day, will her future unfold?
Beginning with an intimate assignation and opening to embrace decades, Mothering Sunday has at its heart both the story of a life and the life that stories can magically contain. Constantly surprising, joyously sensual and deeply moving, it is Graham Swift at his thrilling best.

amazing Story well told.

This book took awhile for me to get into but I now have read it twice and became enthralled by her insights about writing, finding a language and what grabs you in a book. Mothering Sunday grabbed me

The Indelibles

After a lusty, au naturel launch, this welterweight novel is a poignant portrayal of the spirit of a woman who soared. Centered on the meditations of a March 1924 day of a 22-year-old maid (raised an orphan after being left on doorsteps in a basket), the tale transports the reader with her ponderings, perched upon the vivid images and emotions of the day's indelible moments.

This compact, soul-kindling book studies how a life in the day, the convergence of remembered people, places and things, can impact a young lady's humanity and altogether alter the course of her life, traveling through the light of literature.

Exceptional - sensitive and seductive.

Completely compelling from the beginning. A stunning listen which is both sensitively written and utterly transportative!

Thoroughly enjoyed it

Any additional comments?

I loved the audiobook - it's short but beautifully formed. It strikes me as a difficult book to narrate, but I thought that Eve Webster did a great job.
