When I first began blogging one of the first people in the publishing world I encountered was the amazing Georgina Moore. Georgina is a tour de force whom I respect so much that so when I heard her debut novel The Garnett Girls was being launched today I simply had to be involved.
The Garnett Girls will be published by Harper Collins imprint HQ on 16th February 2023 and is available for pre-order from all good bookshops including here.
Let’s find out about the book:
The Garnett Girls
A brilliant debut and powerful tale of sisterhood and home, set on the beautiful beaches of the Isle of Wight…
Flawed, complicated, secretive, big-hearted, you’ll fall in love with the Garnett girls. Margo and Richard’s love affair was the stuff legends are made of – forbidden, passionate, all-encompassing. But ultimately, doomed. When Richard walked out, Margo shut herself away from the world, leaving her three daughters, Rachel, Imogen and Sasha, to run wild.
Having finally put the past behind her, the charismatic Margo holds court in her cottage on the Isle of Wight, refusing to ever speak of Richard. But her silence is keeping each of the Garnett girls from finding true happiness. The eldest, Rachel, is desperate to return to London, but is held hostage by responsibility for Sandcove, their beloved but crumbling family home. Imogen, the dreamy middle child, feels the pressure to marry her kind, considerate fiance, even when her life is taking an unexpected turn. And wild, passionate Sasha, the baby, trapped between her increasingly alienated family and her controlling husband, has unearthed the secret behind Richard’s departure… and when she reveals it, the effects are devastating.
Set on the beautiful beaches of the Isle of Wight, The Garnett Girls asks whether children can ever be free of the mistakes their parents make.
Doesn’t that sound just wonderful? I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.
