An absolutely gripping emotional page-turner with a heartbreaking twist!
Carmel Harrington is an exciting voice in women's fiction - twice shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards, she has the potential to fill the Maeve Binchy slot with her warm, moving and deeply felt novels about family life. She's extremely well connected in the Irish literary world. She chairs the Wexford Literary Festival and is on the panel of TV3's Elaine Show. Carmel has a strong base in Ireland but her voice captures readers' hearts all over the world and we'd now like to grow her in the UK and in Australia as well as accelerating growth in Ireland. Her stories are heart-warming, deeply emotional, and deal with some dark themes but are always ultimately uplifting.
