'Confronting and yet deeply human... a refreshingly honest and compelling portrait of motherhood, loss and abandonment.' This stunning debut novel tells the story of a mother who suffers from post-natal depression. Leaving her baby with her husband, Rachel goes in search of her own father, who disappeared when she was six. What Was Left is a searingly complex portrayal of the person who is so frequently the villain in our culture: the mother who abandons her child.
