'It was just sex, Anj, it didn't mean anything.'

When Anjali finds out that Jack, her boyfriend of ten years, has been cheating on her, it throws her world into chaos. Heartbroken, she fills the emptiness by embarking on a series of flings that her traditional Sri Lankan mother would (mostly) disapprove of.

Yet she can no longer avoid her mother or Shanthi, her distant older sister. And so begins her real journey, one that will make Anjali confront a past she's been desperate to forget. But maybe the past can also be the bridge to her future . . .

Set in Bristol and Sri Lanka, Things My Mother Told Me is a warm, moving and funny story about love, loss, family, cultural divides and the voices we hear in our heads. It will stay with you long after you've turned the final page.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A heartwarming, witty novel about what happens when life as you know it falls apart. Refreshingly honest and poignant, I was carried along with Anjali's story completely, and felt like her family were my own by the end! I loved this. -- Sadie Pearse
Funny and big-hearted and poignant -- Julie Cohen
