Hilary Mantel Synopsis: Every Day is Mother’s Day is the debut novel of British novelist Hilary Mantel. Evelyn Axon is a medium by trade, while her daughter, Muriel, is a half-wit. Stuck in a house that’s falling apart and surrounded by garbage, they defy the curiosity of their neighbors and their social worker, Isabel Field. Isabel is young and inexperienced and has her own problems: an old, senile father, and a lover, Colin, who wants her to run away with him. The problem with running away with Colin is he has three horrible children and a pregnant wife. As Isabel deals with these problems, a horrible secret looms over the Axon household. When it’s revealed, the result is both hilarious and terrifying. The novel is followed by a sequel, Vacant Possession, set ten years later.
