              Family is forever, and there's nothing you can do about it. The charming, hilarious and all-too-relatable new novel from the author of How to be Second Best Molly's a millennial home organiser about to have her first baby. Obviously her mum, Annie, will need to help with the chil...dcare. Everyone else's parents are doing it. But Annie's dreams of music stardom have been on hold for thirty years, paused by childbirth then buried under her responsibilities as a mother, wage earner, wife, and only child of ailing parents. Finally, she can taste freedom. As Molly and her siblings gather in the close quarters of the family home over one fraught summer, shocking revelations come to light. Everyone is forced to confront the question of what it means to be a family. This Has Been Absolutely Lovely is a story about growing up and giving in, of parents and children, of hope and failure, of bravery and defied expectation, and the question of whether it is ever too late to try again. Praise for Jessica Dettmann: 'A totally engaging and disarmingly charming writer' Kathy Lette 'A natural knack for humour' Better Reading 'Blends the family drama of Liane Moriarty with the humour of Sophie Kinsella' Newtown Review of Books 'Ultimate summer read' Herald Sun 'Heartwarming yet biting' Sunday Telegraph 'Sharp and crisp and funny. I was dazzled.' Mia Freedman
