Selected by Sarah Broadhurst
An ex-publishing insider, she has been described as ‘Rosamunde Pilcher rebooted – in the best possible way’ and her stories are modern, absorbing and compelling. Not sure how much of this story is autobiographical but it charts the ups and downs, personally and professionally, of Eleanor Bee – who has always loved books… (a girl after our own heart).
December 2012 Book of the Month.
Happily Ever After by Harriet Evans
Absorbing storytelling at its very best - the compelling novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author You can't escape the ties that bind. The past catches up with you no matter how far you try to run...This is a story of a girl who doesn't believe in happy endings. Or happy families. It's the story of Eleanor Bee, a shy, book-loving girl who vows to turn herself into someone bright, shiny and confident, someone sophisticated. Someone who knows how life works. But life has a funny way of catching us unawares. Turns out that Elle doesn't know everything about love. Or life. Or how to keep the ones we love safe...Absorbing, poignant and unforgettable, Happily Ever After is a compelling story of a fractured family and a girl who doesn't believe in love.
'Funny, wistful and wise, I loved this book.'
'I love Harriet's combination of great writing talent and a wonderfully warm heart.'
