July 2014 Debut of the Month.

If such a thing can exist, this lovely book feels like a true to life fairy tale, full of heartache, pain, mental anguish and yet oodles of hope, hilarity and affection too. Marion has known the deepest and darkest of losses in her life and in the process of learning to survive has lost herself along the way. As she tries to find out about her father’s past in the enticing Sherwood Forest, she begins to laugh, love and live again. The author has the ability to describe both happiness and torment, sometimes at the same time, with a lot of compassion and understanding. This will possibly be described as a romance, however it’s so much more than that, this is a book to make your eyes weep, your emotions swell and your heart sing. ~ Liz Robinson

A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

'When Making Marion landed on my desk I started reading and couldn't stop – never mind the books I was meant to be sending off to press! Reading fiction in an open-plan office is always tricky – especially with Making Marion as the manuscript had me both giggling out-loud and trying to hide my tears. Making Marion is a really funny, heart-warming story, with all the joy of chick-lit but with characters that have real depth, who you are really rooting for by the end of the book. Enjoy!' - Jessica Tinker, Editor, Lion Hudson

Synopsis

Making Marion Where's Robin Hood When You Need Him? by Beth Moran

Marion Miller comes to Sherwood Forest to uncover her father's mysterious past. She is looking for somewhere to stay, but instead finds herself on the wrong side of the reception desk at the Peace and Pigs campsite. Despite her horrible shyness, she promptly lands herself a job working for the big-hearted and irrepressible Scarlett. It takes all of Marion's determination to come out of her shell and get to grips with life on a busy campsite, where even the chickens seem determined to thwart her. Then an unfortunate incident with a runaway bike throws her into the arms of the beautiful, but deeply unimpressed, Reuben...Can Marion discover her father's secret? And will she find peace, and perhaps even love, among the pigs?

Reviews

'A wonderfully warm-hearted story full of love and laughter.' -- Victoria Connelly


About the Author

Beth Moran

Beth Moran grew up in a Nottinghamshire before studying biochemistry at Leeds, working as a scientist in Liverpool, and then as an antenatal educator back in Nottinghamshire.

Following some deep soul searching, Beth embarked on her next adventure. By the time she’d tapped out the first chapter she knew she’d found what she was born to do, and suddenly all those hours spent daydreaming made sense.

When not writing novels, Beth works as a bid writer, and is part a church leadership team, running a youth club and the annual ladies’ night where she gets to dig out her dancing shoes.

Having overcome childhood selective mutism, Beth regularly speaks at conferences and on BBC Radio Nottingham’s Pause for Thought. She is a trustee of Free Range Chicks, a women’s network, and I still living in Nottinghamshire with her husband and three children.
