You only get one life.

But what if it isn't the one you were meant to live?

The Other Daughter

‘When I finally found it I was overwhelmed to see it; to read the words Mum wrote about these women fighting for rights I know I take for granted. Mum was here. And while she was, something happened that changed the entire course of my life.
Perhaps, if I can summon the courage, the next eight weeks will help me finally figure out what that was . . .’

When British teacher Jessica discovers a shocking secret about her birth, she travels to Switzerland in search of answers. She knows her mother spent time in the country writing an article on the Swiss women’s rights movement, but what she doesn’t know is what happened to her while she was there. Can Jess summon the courage to face the truth about her family, or will her search only hurt herself and those around her even more?
Set across a stunning Swiss backdrop, The Other Daughter follows one woman in her search for the truth about her birth, and another desperately trying to succeed in a man’s world. 

The Other Daughter is published in February 2021 by Simon & Schuster UK.
