Susannah has two beautiful daughters, a high-flying medical career, a successful husband and an enviable life. In the unputdown-able Breaking Point, we find out what happens when a disruption to her strict morning leads to a fatal mistake.

A compelling look at the pressures put on working mothers today, Edel Coffey’s bestselling debut novel takes on a devastating story with care and grace. Edel is a journalist and broadcaster who has worked as a presenter and reporter with RTE radio, as editor of the Irish Independent Weekend Magazine, and Books Editor of the Irish Independent.

For this very special event, Edel will be joined in conversation by RTÉ’s Miriam O’ Callaghan.

Breaking Point is raw, compelling, and ground-breaking; Coffey puts the life of working mothers under a microscope. To say I loved it is an understatement.’ Liz Nugent
