For fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and Queenie Malone's Paradise Hotel, comes a story about mothers, daughters and second chances . . .

It's 1981. Eleven-year-old Sadie adores her beautiful and vibrant mother, Connie, whose dreams of making it big as a singer fill their tiny house in Leeds. It's always been just the two of them. Until the unthinkable happens.

Jean hasn't seen her good-for-nothing daughter Connie since she ran away from the family home in Harlow - or Pram Town as its inhabitants affectionately call it - aged seventeen and pregnant.

But in the wake of the Royal Wedding, Jean gets a life-changing call: could she please come and collect the granddaughter she's never met?

We all know how Charles and Diana turned out, and Jean and Sadie are hardly a match made in heaven - but is there hope of a happy ending for them?

Written in Joanna Nadin's trademark dazzling prose, The Talk of Pram Town tells the story of three generations of Earnshaws and asks whether it always has to be like mother, like daughter . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
Another triumph . . . I absolutely loved it -- Kate Eberlen, author of Miss You and Only You
Fabulous on mothers and daughters, guilt and ambition and what it means to be alienated from the life you've always known * Daily Mail *
I adored The Talk Of Pram Town. A brilliantly written, emotional and honest novel set in Essex and Leeds about mothers and daughters, dreams and dark secrets. It pulled at my heartstrings and the characters stayed inside my head long after I had finished reading. Highly recommend this wonderful book. -- Jenny Quintana, author of The Missing Girl and The Hiding Place
An enchanting, heartfelt and nostalgic read -- Prima, on The Queen of Bloody Everything

“A superbly crafted story, full of heart and humour.”

I absolutely loved Nadin’s last book, The Queen of Bloody Everything, and so was a little apprehensive about reading The Talk of Pram Town. How could it possibly compare? Well. Having just closed the back cover,... More
