A rallying cry for carers and the acts of love that hold families together, from bestselling novelist Kate Mosse.
A beautiful, emotional and timely read.
Caring is an issue that affects us all – as bestselling novelist Kate Mosse knows all too well.
Kate has cared in turn for her father and mother, and for Granny Rosie, her 90-year-old mother-in-law. Along the way she has experienced the joys, challenges and frustrations shared by an invisible army of carers.
At the heart of this care lie everyday acts of love, and the realisation that, sooner or later, most of us will come to rely on an extra pair of hands.
Brilliant... uplifting, inspiring, a tribute to love.
A beautiful, profoundly moving book about society’s most vital glue – care.
Read an extract from ‘An Extra Pair of Hands’, and watch a recording of an event with Kate Mosse and palliative care doctor and writer Rachel Clarke in conversation about care and everyday acts of love.
