Mother’s Day might be over for another year, but I reckon us mums deserve to be treated every day.
My very talented friend and author, Kate Thompson, is about to publish her fourth Pan Macmillan novel, The Allotment Girls, so I wanted to celebrate by giving YOU the chance to win a little treat!
I’m giving away an autographed copy of Kate’s newest book, which tells the story of the gritty East End women who kept the home fires burning during the tumult of World War II:
‘During the Second World War, life in the iconic Bryant & May match factory is grimy and tough. Annie, Rose, Pearl and Millie carry on making matches for the British Army, with bombs raining down around them.
Inspired by the Dig for Victory campaign, Annie persuades the owners to start Bryant & May allotment in the factory grounds. With plenty of sweat and toil, the girls eventually carve out a corner of the yard into a green plot full of life and colour.
In the darkest of times, the girls find their allotment a tranquil, happy escape. Using pierced dustbin lids to sieve through the shrapnel and debris, they bring about a powerful change, not just in the factory, but their own lives.
As the war rages on, the garden becomes a place of community, friendship – and deceit. As the garden thrives and grows, so do the girls’ secrets . . . ‘
As well as this fab novel I’m also giving away this gorgeous jumbo-sized Portmeirion teacup from their Botanic Garden range, decorated with a delightful dog rose design and worth £29.95!
