And it’s another week at the top for When All Is Said by Anne Griffin, with more than double the sales of second place (the unvanquishable Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris, in case you’re wondering).

We also have a few new or recent releases scattered throughout the charts this week. Creeping into the Top 20 is Lynda LaPlante with Murder Mile, at no. 17 and no. 6 in Mass Market Fiction; The Great Wide Open by Douglas Kennedy at no. 19 and no. 5 in Original Fiction; and The Boy Who Followed his Father into Auschwitz by Jeremy Dronfield at no. 20 and no. 6 in Paperback Non-Fiction.

Dominating the Children’s charts this week is Dave Pilkey, with three Dog Man books: Dog Man and Cat Kid (book 4), Lord of the Fleas (book 5) and, at the top of the Children’s chart and no. 10 in the overall Top 20, Brawl of the Wild (book 6). Here’s hoping the title puns continue as long as the series!

This week’s featured book is another of the recent releases, and is currently no. 9 in the Original Fiction chart: My Mother’s Daughter by Ann O’Loughlin. Here’s the blurb:

County Wicklow, Ireland. Margo has just lost her husband Conor and is grieving his passing, unsure how she and her daughter Elsa will survive without him. Then she receives a letter that turns everything she thought she knew on its head. Not only has she lost her husband, but now Margo fears she could lose her daughter as well.

Ohio, United States. Cassie has just split from her husband acrimoniously. Upset and alone she does not know how to move forward. Then her ex-husband demands a paternity test for their daughter Tilly and sorrow turns to anger as Cassie faces the frightening possibility of losing her daughter.

A powerful, moving stories of family, resilience and compassion, and how women support each other through the most difficult times, My Mother’s Daughter takes the issues closest to our hearts and makes us ask ourselves the most difficult questions – what would we do in Margo and Cassie’s place?

An addictive and heartwarming new novel from the bestselling author of The Ludlow Ladies’ SocietyThe Judge’s Wife and The Ballroom Café
