Editorial Reviews

Review

"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 

"Life without a mother and becoming a mother, all delightfully told through a first person narrative."

"One to share with your mothers, sisters, nieces and friends, especially those who are expecting. It is a human story, a woman's story, and one well worth reading."

"This book really was fantastic! She painted a beautiful picture of the importance of family, dealing with love as well as loss and giving a part of yourself to those we care about. Such a strong emotional book. I'm so glad I read it!"

From the Author

Writing Looking Past was a great experience. I particularly enjoyed creating Hazel's character, and softened much more towards her than I had meant to.

 
I am very lucky that I have my mum, and I'm 40 now. Sarah lost her mother at 11 and I tried to imagine what that would have been like, for her and her dad. Sarah going through puberty without a mum to guide her through it - and her lovely, kind, gentle dad trying to get to grips with it all.

I have seen lots of people give up things for relationships - including parts of themselves - and I didn't want this to happen to Sarah but I could see how easily it could, particularly with such an essential part of her life missing. James and his mum are quite a formidable team but Sarah is well able to stand up to them; she just needs to realise it.


I know people have cried at particular parts of the book, which I take as a good sign as they have engaged with it, but do not be put off by this. It is an uplifting tale.
