Joanna Trollope is the author of 22 novels including The Rector’s Wife, Marrying the Mistress and Daughters in Law. She was appointed OBE in 1996 and CBE in 2019, and is a trustee of the National Literary Trust. 

Mum & Dad
is a brilliant examination of what happens when family roles are reversed and adult children are called on to step-up to help and support parents in need. Twenty-five years after Gus and Monica left to set up a vineyard in Spain, Gus suffers a stroke which threatens their idyllic life. As the children descend on the vineyard, it becomes clear that they have very different ideas of how to handle mum and dad, and the family business. As tensions mount can family ties prove strong enough to keep them together?
