Win ONE of FIVE copies of A Different River!

Be in with a chance of winning a copy of the latest novel, A Different River, from Richard and Judy Award Winner Jo Verity. We have FIVE copies up for grabs!

The warm and witty novel is the sixth from Jo, which we are giving away to celebrate a specially commissioned set of covers for her ebooks from Hungarian artist Rebekka Ivacson which are being launched in November 2018.

Miriam, had been freewheeling into a comfortable future, but retired and recently widowed, she finds herself stuck between the dual duties of caring for grandchildren and parents.

A random encounter presents her with job opportunity she would never have imagined in a million years, then just weeks later she hears news that offers a chance to rewrite the past.

Is she brave enough to take up new opportunities and change her life? Can her instincts be trusted or should she stick with the tried and true? There’s only one way to find out…

All of Jo’s novels, including A Different River, are available from all good bookstores and online retailers in both print (RRP £8.99) and ebook editions.

Jo’s other novels are: Everything in the Garden, Bells, Sweets from Morocco, Left and Leaving, Not Funny Not Clever.

Published by Honno Welsh Women’s Press, publishing the best writing from the women of Wales, contemporary and classic, for over 30 years: www.honno.co.uk / facebook.com/honnopress | twitter.com/honno | Instagram: @gwasghonnopress

The results are in!

Congratulations to our winner
Audrey French, Susie Groom, Dana Manning, Mary Lucking, and Kay Adams
We will contact you via email to assist in claiming your prize!

Thank you to all who entered, and good luck with our other competitions!
