The breathtaking new novel from the internationally bestselling author of The Rain Queen and Congo Dawn.

'You are her mother in this moment. The future is another time.' In a remote part of Tanzania known as the Cradle of Humankind, Essie Lawrence lives with her husband in an archaeologist’s camp. One morning a chance encounter with two strangers out in the field sees her making a rash promise – one she has no idea how she can keep. When she returns home, she has a baby in her arms, a motherless infant, too young even to have a name. From now until the coming of the rains, Essie is to care for the little girl. And then hand her back. Bringing a baby to the research base is just the first of many taboos Essie is about to break. As she becomes immersed in a life-changing experience, she finds that her marriage, her career – everything she’s worked for – is put at risk. An exquisite and heart-piercing story of one woman’s bond with a baby, The Beautiful Mother will resonate with every parent, crossing time, place and culture. It is an unforgettable exploration of what it really means to be a family.
