    Mine is American Wife – the ‘win’ in it refers to her husband becoming the President of the United States… but it’s so much more than that. One of the best books I’ve ever read.

    Jodi Picoult – My Sisters Keeper

    I’ve read this hundreds of times and it makes me cry every time! She captures all the conflicting emotions so well. Everyone should read it!

    I would recommend ‘A Bloody Good Winner’ by Dave Nevison. Just finishing reading his book about his life as a professional punter. Gives some highs and lows of betting on the A.P , Dettori and all other great riders and the pitfalls of the game.

  • Katy Costello

    I’d recommend Lord of the Rings – at it’s heart, it’s a story of an epic struggle, snatching victiry from the jaws of defeat, and dealing with the consequences of your actions.

  • Helen Grayson

    The sea sisters.

    It’s a wonderful story and a real page turner. Something that you can really get into and relate to the characters.

    A must read!

    War Horse from Michael Morpurgo one of the most touching and amazing books i have ever read that brings me to tears everytime i read it.and shows the bond between human and animal at its strongest and best.

    A street cat named Bob – a fantastic book – how animals can reach places in the soul and turn a life around. Pathos and sheer joy go hand in hand within this spell binding read.

  • Gail Holl

    I love ‘To Hell and Back’ the true story of Audie Murphy. Unbelievable that a young boy managed to achieve all that and be the most decorated soldier in the American Army.

  • Catherine Mills

    Empty Cradles (Oranges and Sunshine) by Margaret Humphries. Incredible true story of the British government sending children from childrens homes to Australia and telling parents they had been adopted and telling the children their parents had died. This book is written by the social worker who first heard these claims and what happened after. An absolute must read!
