The Godmothers by Monica McInerney
As the only daughter of a troubled young mother, Eliza Miller's life was kept on track by the constant support of her watchful godmothers Olivia and Maxie - until a tragic event just before her eighteenth birthday changed everything. Thirteen years on, Eliza is cautious, lonely, and dedicated to her work in Melbourne. Out of the blue, an enticing invitation from Olivia, now based in the UK, prompts a leap into the unknown.
Within a fortnight, Eliza is at the centre of a complicated family, and the busy hotel they run in Edinburgh's West End. Amidst the chaos, Eliza unexpectedly begins to explore her past. Her godmothers have long been waiting for her to ask about her mother's mysterious life - and the identity of the father she has never known.
But even they are taken by surprise with all that she discovers . . .
