The Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller: 'Moggach is at the height of her powers with this book' Sunday Times 'Unputdownable, fun and tender with characters that jump off the page. Perfection' Marian Keyes 'A cracking, crackling social comedy, with some brilliant observations about ageing and a devilish plot twist' The Times From the bestselling author of THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL and TULIP FEVER, a deliciously funny, poignant and wry novel, full of surprising twists and turns:

James is getting on a bit and needs full-time help. So Phoebe and Robert, his middle-aged offspring, employ Mandy, who seems willing to take him off their hands. But as James regales his family with tales of Mandy's virtues, their shopping trips and the shared pleasure of their journeys to garden centres, Phoebe and Robert sense something is amiss.

Then something extraordinary happens which throws everything into new relief, changing all the stories of their childhood - and the father - that they thought they knew so well.

Reviews for The Carer

Unputdownable, fun and tender with characters that jump off the page. Perfection Moggach is at the height of her powers with this book, which moves from a beautifully observed comedy of middle-class life to an immensely moving celebration of two imperfect marriages - Sunday Times A cracking, crackling social comedy with some brilliant people observations about ageing and a devilish plot twist - The Times Moggach's latest is full of warmth and humour as well as blistering truths about the sorrowful threads that bind families - Daily Mirror This is a world full of charm, warmth and pitch-perfect humour, but it is also a world punctuated by Moggach's blistering truths on the tangled, sorrowful threads of resentment and disappointment that bind families together - Sunday Express, S Mag Infuses the subject with her trademark humour and pathos, reshaping a societal dilemma into a family drama, by turns compelling and surprising - her nuanced characterisations make the subject matter really come alive - Observer
