Debut novel

Like Mother explores what is handed down from generation to generation, and asks us whether a woman’s home is her castle or her cage.

Secrets, lies and crying babies, everyone has a breaking point. It’s 1969 and mankind has leapt up to the moon, but a young mother in small-town Australia can’t get past the kitchen door. Louise Ashland ­is exhausted – her husband, Steven, is away on the road and her mother, Gladys, won't leave her alone. At least her baby, Dolores, has finally stopped screaming and is sweetly sleeping in her cot. Right where Louise left her. Or is she? As the day unravels, Louise will unearth secrets her mother – and perhaps her own mind – have worked hard to keep buried. But what piece of family lore is so terrible that it has been kept hidden all this time? And what will exposing it reveal about mother and daughter? Like Mother explores what is handed down from generation to generation, and asks us whether a woman’s home is her castle or her cage.

'Elusive, unsettling and absolutely compelling – I couldn’t put it down.'
Rosalie Ham, author of Summer at Mount Hope

'Austin masterfully handles the dark heart of mother love and protection as both a nightmare and a heartbreak. A true piece of literary gold for those of us who relish an excavation of what lies beneath the facade.'
Sarah Schmidt
