Mary Grand about this book: Four inspiring and heart-warming short stories from the author of 'Free to Be Tegan'. Each story is distinct from the others but they share a theme of women facing and overcoming life-changing issues. Reviewers say "enchanting and mesmerising", "absolutely brilliant", "a very enjoyable read" (amazon.co.uk). Rachel is on the Isle of Wight to escape and hide away, but she finds a new arrival brings her into contact with new people and helps her face what is troubling her. Erin is living a fairy tale. Or is she? Megan is content in her world, but everything changes when she meets a man from outside her community, and she struggles with her own and her baby's identity. Kay has a secret she has kept for years, which she wants to bury permanently, but this leads to new discoveries she didn't anticipate.
The stories are set on the Isle of Wight and in Wales and are an ideal introduction to Mary Grand's work. Her next novel, set on the beautiful Gower Peninsula, will be published later this year.
