Jenn-J-McLeod_bridge_web_f_improf_196x297Shadow-cover-screenshot-194x300Jenn J McLeod is releasing a new book just in time for Mother’s Day – and thanks to the lovely people at Simon & Schuster I have one copy to give away. Here’s the enticing blurb for Season of Shadow and Light:


When it seems everything Paige trusts is beginning to betray her, she leaves her husband at home and sets off on a road trip with six year old Matilda, and Nana Alice in tow.
But stranded amid rising floodwaters, on a detour to the tiny town of Coolabah Tree Gully, Paige discovers the greatest betrayal of all happened there twenty years earlier.
Someone knows that truth can wash away the darkest shadows, but…
Are some secrets best kept for the sake of others?

My favourite book of the year, so far, has been The Strays by Emily Bitto & I was delighted when it deservedly won the Stella prize. When the book first appeared on my radar I thought it wasn’t my sort of book as I’m not particularly interested in art or the 1930s.

Hi Sara I would definitely recommend Susan Lewis – Behind Closed Doors. I couldn’t put it down it was fantastic, well written and I just LOVE a book you cannot put down. Being a busy working mother my time is night time before bed and I often found myself reading until well into the morning. Very tired I must say the next day but well worth the time. I look forward to your next book. Kind regards
