Elise Lowe

Author Elise Loweabout this book: When I began writing this book in 2017, I was keen to explore how a woman's relationship with the world might change once she became a mother. It's an issue I often talked about with friends - the tug of war between work and family, the mental load that falls predominantly on women, and the strain placed on a relationship as roles change to accommodate the arrival of a child. I'd picked up on this huge sense of deflation among my peers, many of whom believed they were sold a lie. While some had managed to carve out new (and impressive) paths for themselves, others were still figuring things out. This was the starting point for my main character, Sophia Williams-Williams.

Around the same time, I'd been working on a short story about a child who'd become "addicted" to praying following the death of a relative. At some point, I realised that these two strands of thought could be intertwined to tell the story of a mother and son over the course of an eventful year.
