The Fairytale Life of Dorothy Gale (2023)
Virginia Kantra
"Both deliciously escapist and emotionally honest, this book is a rare gem. Kantra is a deft, wise writer at the top of her game."
Girls Aloud (2023)
Judith Arnold
"Wise and funny and smart, Girls Aloud is a bright feminist tale of a woman coming into her own power to find her voice. Populated with lively, real-life characters and the daily problems of modern life, it's a book that's guaranteed to make you cheer."
Dreaming of Water (2023)
A J Banner
"It's a rare and delicious treat to pick up a book and know from the very start that you're in the hands of a master. Dreaming of Water is a fast-paced tale, moody and rife with secrets, layered with family and betrayals, loss and love, all wrapped in Banner's clean, polished prose. Book club fiction at its best."
