Looking Past

by Katharine E Smith and Catherine Clarke
Publication Date: 27/04/2015
RRP  $20.26 $19.95
Looking Past is a tale of family, friendship, love, life and death - not necessarily in that order.

Sarah Marchley is eleven years old when her mother dies. Suffering an acute sense of loss, she and her father continue quietly, communicating far too little.
At university, Sarah begins her first serious relationship. Along with her new boyfriend comes his mother, the indomitable Hazel Poole. Despite some misgivings, Sarah finds herself drawn into the matriarchal Poole family and discovers that gaining a mother figure in her life brings mixed blessings.

This book will strike a chord with mothers, daughters, and daughters-in-law, everywhere. If you enjoy psychological fiction with a dry sense of humour, this is for you.

"Without offering coping mechanisms or advice, this is ultimately an uplifting story about being true to yourself and becoming a mother on your own terms." Today's Child Magazine
