Sins Of The Mother by Tara Hyland

From the author of Daughters of Fortune comes a sweeping family drama that follows a mother and daughter through the poverty of post-WWII Ireland and London and into the glamour of 1950s Hollywood and beyond, revealing the ways in which family ties can never be broken.
Tara Hyland is beloved by readers for her exquisite talent at weaving family sagas that journey through the rocky roads of secrets, lies, and betrayals, only to show that no challenge, no matter how difficult, can ever truly sever the bonds of love.

The novel opens in 1946, when Franny Healy is a beautiful and spirited teenager living in the poverty of County Cork, Ireland. Franny wants nothing more than to escape to the excitement of London. But when she discovers she is pregnant, her boyfriend abandons her. Undeterred, Franny flees to the city, where she finds work as a nightclub performer. She shines onstage and is soon propelled into a life she’s only dreamed of, filled with Hollywood stars, glamorous parties, furs and fashion, plus a new husband—who must never know of the daughter she left behind in County Cork with her mother.

Tifferz Take:

Okay guys I am now a fan of Tara Hyland. Man this woman can tell a story that keeps you on your toes. The story and characters are well developed and strong. I was hooked in the first few chapters. I did not want to put this book down. I was surprised at the unexpected twist and turns and was never expecting this book to end how it did. Sins Of The Mother contains abandonment, crime, abuse, love, romance, some bitterness and much more. This book does contain a few detailed sex scenes. You can easily graze over these if you dont care for that. I highly recommend this book and will read this story again. I love when a story stick with you and this one does.
