Mother Island

How does it feel to come home from work one evening and find your two-year-old son gone? How does it feel to steal another woman’s child? To take a boy from his mother, and try to make him yours, make things right?

My Policeman

From the moment Marion first lays eyes on Tom – her best friend’s big brother, broad, blond, blue-eyed – she is smitten. And when he comes home from National Service to be a policeman, Marion, a newly qualified teacher, is determined to win him.

The Good Plain Cook

It’s summer 1936, and the world is on the cusp of change, but there’s little sign of this in rural Sussex. So when local girl Kitty Allen answers an advert looking for ‘a good plain cook’, she has no idea what she’s in for.

The Pools

Middle England, mid-1980s. The kind of place where nothing ever happens. Except something has happened. A fifteen-year-old boy called Robert has been killed, down by the pools. And half a dozen lives will come unravelled.

Roberts writes fantastically well about motherhood.
