Believe in Me is an unforgettable and profound story about three generations of one family and the healing power of understanding where you’ve come from.

As a teenager in the 1970s, Sarah is forced to leave her home in upstate New York to accompany a missionary to Idaho. When she falls pregnant, she is dispatched to relatives in Sydney, who place her in a home for unmarried mothers. Years later her daughter, Bet, pieces together her mother’s life story, hoping to understand her better. As she learns more about Sarah’s past, Bet struggles to come to terms with her own history and identity – yet is determined to make peace with Sarah’s choices before it’s too late. Moving and deeply personal, Believe in Me explores the relationships between mothers and their children across three generations of one family. This audiobook questions what we can ever truly know of our parents’ early lives, even as their experiences weave ineffably into our identities and destinies.

'A profound portrait of the mother–child relationship, complex, heart-wrenching and suffused with an ineffable grace. Neave asks: what does it mean to be a woman? Her answer is both subtle and surprising.’
Amanda Lohrey, author of The Labyrinth

'Astute, tender and wise: a novel of damage, recovery and the tangle of the mother–daughter knot.'
Gail Jones, author of Our Shadows

'Neave has a strong narrative sense and a gift for the evocation of time and place.' (on Who We Were)
