To take a boy from his mother, and try to make him yours, make things right? This is the story of two women, Nula and Maggie, joined by old family history and love for the same little boy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Roberts writes fantastically well about motherhood and the magical, other-worldly atmosphere of Anglesey" The Times "More than just a piece of mummy lit, it's particularly good on the multiple tiny stories of hurt and resentments that can make up a family history." Metro "There's little more engrossing than a top-notch psychological thriller. Bethan Roberts's latest novel doesn't disappoint - it's satisfyingly creepy and stimulates that delicious paradox: goose-pimples in summer." The Independent "A sharp examination of what it means to be a mother...What makes Mother Island stand out from the crowd, though, is the compassion the author shows for her central characters...A thoroughly cracking read" Big Issue "Cleverly constructed... Skilful unravelling of events... Uncomfortable and gripping in equal measures" -- Juanita Coulson Lady
