'We truly loved reading this beautiful, simple novel in one sitting.' - ELLE The bestselling French phenomenon Smita, Giulia, Sarah: three lives, three continents, three women with nothing in common, but nevertheless bound by a rare expression of courage - like three strands in a braid. India. Smita is an untouchable, married to a 'rat-hunter', her job to clean with her bare hands the village latrines, just like her mother before her. Her dream is to see her daughter escape this same fate, and learn to read. When this hope is shattered, she takes matters into her own hands, despite her husband's warnings, despite the odds stacked against her . . . Sicily. Giulia is a worker in her father's wig workshop, the last of its kind in Palermo. She classifies, washes, bleaches, and dyes the hair provided by the city's hairdressers. When her father is the victim of a serious accident, she quickly discovers her family have been living a lie . . . Canada. Sarah is a successful lawyer. As a twice-divorced mother of three children, she ploughs through cases at breakneck speed. Just as she is about to be promoted, she learns she has breast cancer. Her seemingly perfect existence begins to show its cracks . . . Laetitia Colombani's The Braid is the powerfully moving story of three women's courage in the face of adversity.

A screenwriter and director, Laetitia Colombani is clearly a master of the art of storytelling and editing. She creates female characters with strong personalities, whose lives she interweaves in a hopeful vision. But her writing is sensitive and restrained enough to save the novel from any accusation that it's nothing more than a 'feel good' book. * Le Monde * We truly loved reading this beautiful, simple novel . . . with characters who teach or remind us of the all too often unacceptable conditions in which women around the world live. * ELLE (France) * Tuck a copy of Laetitia Colombani's The Braid under your arm for ultimate cultural clout this spring. * ES magazine * The Braid is a beautifully written novel of determination, bravery and hope. You will remember Smita, Giulia and Sarah long after you've read their stories. -- AJ Pearce, author of <i>Dear Mrs Bird</i> Elegant and engaging . . . What stood out for me was the colour and authenticity the author gives to each character's background as they face lifechanging challenges and search for the courage to confront and overcome them. * Daily Mail *
