CHILD­HOOD vac­ci­na­tion may not sound like a com­pelling sub­ject. But the fall-out from a life-chang­ing out­break of measles in a small Ir­ish town makes for a thought pro­vok­ing story about parental choice and re­spon­si­bil­ity. Emo­tional and clev­erly crafted with well­drawn char­ac­ters. My Mother’s Shadow – Nikola Scott, Head­line Re­view – out Thurs­day THE bond between moth­ers and daugh­ters is at the heart of this de­light­ful fam­ily mys­tery, set partly in 1958. A year af­ter her mum’s sud­den death, Ad­die is shat­tered when a stranger knocks at her door, claim­ing to be her twin. As Ad­die probes her mum’s past, a world of se­crets are re­vealed. Beau­ti­fully writ­ten and hugely en­joy­able.
