Only is Caroline Baum’s fascinating and moving memoir about being an only child in a very unusual family. As well as sharing the story of her unconventional childhood, Caroline explores what it means to be the daughter of people damaged by trauma and tragedy. Secrets are revealed and differences are settled in what Elizabeth Gilbert describes as ‘An unflinchingly honest exploration of what it takes to be a good daughter, with a heartmelting scoop of ice cream’.
