            'I don't want two wishy-washy godmothers,' Jeannie had said that day in the country hospital when Eliza was only a day old. 'No dolls. No pink dresses. Just lots of adventures. Lots of spoiling. The pair of you like two mighty warriors protecting her at every step.' Eliza Miller ...grew up in Australia as the only daughter of a troubled single mother, but with the constant support of two watchful godmothers, Olivia and Maxie. Despite her tricky childhood, she always felt loved and secure. Until, just weeks before her eighteenth birthday, the tragic death of her mother changed everything. Thirteen years on, Eliza is deliberately living a life as safe as possible, avoiding close relationships and devoting herself to her job - until one day an unexpected invitation from her godmothers, now both based in the UK, prompts a leap into the unknown. Within a fortnight, Eliza has swapped her predictable routine in Melbourne for life in the middle of a complicated family in Edinburgh. There's no such thing as an ordinary day any more. Yet, amidst the chaos, Eliza begins to blossom. She finds herself not only hopeful about the future, but ready to explore her past. Her godmothers have long been waiting for her to ask about her mother's mysterious life - and about the identity of the father she has never known. But even they are taken by surprise with all that Eliza discovers. Set in Australia, Scotland, Ireland and England, THE GODMOTHERS is a story about love, loss, hope and sorrow, about the families we are born into and the families we make for ourselves.

            Dawn Edelstein knows everything there is to know about dying. As a death doula, she specialises in helping her clients make peace with the end of their lives. But as she's flying home from her latest case, her plane plummets from the sky, and she is forced to confront her own mor...tality for the first time. Instead of seeing her brilliant quantum physicist husband Brian and their beautiful daughter flash before her eyes in what she assumes are her last moments, only one face comes to mind: Wyatt Neville. Miraculously surviving the crash, Dawn is compensated with a plane ticket to any place of her choosing. Suddenly, she sees two options before her: return to Boston, her family, and the life she knows, or journey back to an Egyptian archaeological site she left over a decade earlier, reconnect with Wyatt and their unresolved history, and finally finish her magnum opus on The Book of Two Ways - the first known map of the afterlife - that she was forced to abandon. As the story unfolds, Dawn's two possible fates are unspooled side by side, as are the secrets and doubts long buried alongside them. While attempting to reconcile with the path she chooses for her life, Dawn must confront the questions she's never truly answered: What does a life well-lived look like? When we leave this earth, what do we leave behind of ourselves? And who would you be, if you hadn't turned out to be the person you are right now?
