YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR FRIENDS BUT YOU CAN'T CHOOSE YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW. Electra and Adam are living proof that opposites attract. Electra is warm, passionate and creative. She wants to have a baby. Adam is calm, reasonable and very English. He doesn't. Enter the mother-in-law... Cold, critical and snobbish, she disapproves of her son's marriage. And then she moves in with them. Will their relationship survive? A darkly funny, insightful and cautionary tale that will make you question where your loyalties lie.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Vivacious Greek girl Electra and reserved Englishman Adam are chalk and cheese on paper. Nevertheless, their bond is unbreakable - until his mother arrives on the scene. With sizeable pinches of love, tragedy and humour, this is deliciously satisfying" * Cosmopolitan *
"Engaging, delicately observed and believable story of a young couple's struggle to stay together after his acid mother moves in with them to recuperate from an accident" * Good Housekeeping *
"A witty, fun yet cautionary tale of marriage" * OK! magazine *
"A darkly funny novel about interference, Alzheimer's, Greek Cypriot warmth and several misunderstandings" * Bookseller *
"A whole cacophony of characters from different cultures crowd into this warm and funny novel... A lovely book, rich with snapshots of Cypriot history and culture and an excellent observation of how different families communicate" * Candis *

“The Mother-in-law”

A formula thats been done before, the same goes for Makis' first book. Nothing to write home about...My Big Fat Greek Wedding genre, but trying to be serious; if you are Greek don't bother wasting your money... More
