AJ was picked by The Guardian as one of the debuts for 2018. Hannah Beckerman says “joyfully uplifting and optimistic novel…Despite its historical setting, Dear Mrs Bird’s timely story of courage and good humour in adversity is being pitched as the literary tonic of the year”.
Hazel has read Dear Mrs Bird and says “I loved Dear Mrs Bird and was completely swept up in the story of Emmy and Bunty. The portrayal of their lives in London during the Blitz was so vividly realised it felt real and I really cared what happened to them. I devoured the book in a single sitting and highly recommend it. It has all the warmth and charm of The Guernsey Potato and Peel Pie Society and I’m certain it will find as wide an audience. I can’t wait to be able to recommend it in the bookshop”.
