Cover image for My Mother's Daughter


Cealie is sick of being nothing more than her mother's daughter.
She dresses the way her mother wants, wears her hair the way her mother likes... and is the laughing stock of school as a result.
Then on an impulse, Cealie cuts off her offending hair and runs away to Great Auntie Gwennie who lives in a remote village in Wales.
There, posing as a boy, Cealie not only makes some discoveries about her own identity, but also about her mother's past - and its haunting links with the present.
