Dear Librarians,

Last year, I read an article about a single mother, diagnosed with terminal cancer, who was searching for a guardian for her eight-year-old son. Her son's father was not in the picture, her own parents had passed away and she was an only child herself. She didn't have any friends or colleagues who she felt she could ask. As someone with a huge network of friends and family, I asked myself: how does someone become so alone?

In THE MOTHER'S PROMISE, four women are alone. Alice is that single mother diagnosed with a terminal illness. Zoe, her daughter, suffers from social anxiety disorder making her feel alone even when she is surrounded by people. Kate, Alice's nurse, is alone in a decision which could shape her family's future. Sonja, Alice's social worker, is alone in her marriage.

Over the course of the book, each woman is forced to face her greatest fear to ensure that one girl is never alone again.

I hope you enjoy it. Please email jordan.hanley@stmartins.com to request an advance copy.
