Kirsty Manning recommends
The Way from Here (2022)
Jane Cockram
"This is the nostalgic travel-tale we all need right now: Sisters, secrets, exotic locations and starting over. This charming tale will burrow into your heart."
Lost Autumn (2020)
Mary-Rose MacColl
"A thoughtful, multi-layered tale that probes the stories we tell ourselves about family and friendship, power and control. MacColl's writing deftly - yet gently - explores the nature of courage and kept me guessing to the very end."
