The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel (Large Paperback)

20.95

When Emira is apprehended at a supermarket for kidnapping the white child she’s actually babysitting, it sets off an explosive chain of events. Her employer Alix, a feminist blogger with the best of intentions, resolves to make things right. But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix’s desire to help. When a surprising connection emerges between the two women, it sends them on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, each other, and the messy dynamics of privilege.

‘A gripping page-turner’ Madeline Miller – ‘A beautiful tale of how we live now’ Elizabeth Day – ‘Charming, authentic and every bit as entertaining as it is calmly, intelligently damning’ Observer.
