'I adored every page of this book and can't imagine a more perfect summer read. Gorgeously written, heart-warming and with characters so vividly realised that you just want to hang out with them on a Saturday night. She’s already a hugely popular author but this, mark my words, is the book that will make Catherine Ferguson go stratospheric.' Claudia Carroll
“This was such a fantastic feel good read! I am still thinking about it now over 24 hours after reading it and still feel all fuzzy and warm!”
“Full of wit, warmth, lots of laugh out loud moments yet with a real gorgeous, valuable message at its centre, this book is crying out for loads of people to read it.”
“Catherine Ferguson's writing is always a joy… It romps along at a great pace and she certainly knows how to make you laugh and cry – sometimes within just a few pages of each other. Highly recommended.”
About the Author
Catherine Ferguson burst onto the writing scene at the age of nine, anonymously penning a weekly magazine for her five-year-old brother (mysteriously titled the ‘Willy’ comic).
Catherine’s continuing love of writing saw her spend her twenties writing for various teenage magazines including Jackie and Blue Jeans before getting serious and becoming a sub-editor on the Dundee Courier & Advertiser.
Catherine’s first novel Humbugs and Heartstrings is very loosely based on Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. She lives with her son in Northumberland.
