Gill Thompson recommends
The Lost Lights of St Kilda (2020)
"A compelling love story set against the dramatic backdrops of a remote Scottish island and war-torn France. As beautiful and haunting as St Kilda itself, this is a book that will stay with me for a long time."
The Girl Behind the Gates (2020)
"The Girl behind the Gates absorbed me from the start. A haunting, heart-wrenching but ultimately heart-warming novel told in beautiful prose and with great compassion and insight."
The Dressmaker of Paris (2020)
"The Dressmaker of Paris is a delicious book: elegantly structured, beautifully written and with a fascinating protagonist. Georgia Kaufmann has created a beautiful and compelling novel that had me hooked until the very last page. And that ending: wow!"
