    Winner
    of the 2010 Costa Novel Award, THE HAND THAT FIRST HELD MINE is a gorgeously
    written story of love and motherhood, a tour de force from one of our
    best-loved novelists When the sophisticated Innes Kent turns up on her
    doorstep, Lexie Sinclair realises she cannot wait any longer for her life to
    begin, and leaves for London. There, at the heart of the 1950s Soho art
    scene, she carves out a new life. In the present day, Elina and Ted are
    reeling from the difficult birth of their first child. Elina struggles to
    reconcile the demands of motherhood with her sense of herself as an artist,
    and Ted is disturbed by memories of his own childhood that don't tally with
    his parents' version of events. As Ted begins to search for answers, an
    extraordinary portrait of two women is revealed, separated by fifty years,
    but connected in ways that neither could ever have expected.
