April 2019 newsflash! Lost Daughter is now on NetGalley.


It’s an emotional family drama about Rachel, whose life has unravelled since her husband has been given custody of their young daughter Becca after a messy break-up.

Here’s my brilliant editor, Bookouture associate publisher Kathryn Taussig, on Lost Daughter: ‘It’s such a rare thing to find an author who can write family drama well, and for this reason I’m over the moon to be publishing Ali Mercer. Her writing is beautiful, thoughtful and moving. Her characters are believably flawed and yet endlessly relatable and her stories are engrossing. Lost Daughter is a perfect fit for Bookouture and I know it will delight readers of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain and Kerry Fisher.’

Bookouture will publish my next novel, also an emotional family drama, in September 2019.
