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?
