Book News: Spare Brides by Adele Parks

One of my new favourite authors Adele Parks is back very soon with a brand new novel, but it's quite different from her previous novels. This one is historical fiction, as opposed to women's fiction, but I have to say I am very excited to read it anyway - Adele is a very good storyteller. I love the cover as well, it reeks 1920's glamour and is just stunning. Spare Brides is released on 13th February.

You can pre-order Spare Brides as a paperback or an eBook now.

"New Year's Eve, 1920. The Great War is over and it's a new decade of glamorous promise. But a generation of men and women who survived the extreme trauma and tragedy will never be the same.

With countless men lost, it seems that only wealth and beauty will secure a husband from the few who returned, but lonely Beatrice has neither attribute. Ava has both, although she sees marriage as a restrictive cage after the freedom war allowed. Sarah paid the war's ultimate price: her husband's life. Lydia should be grateful that her own husband's desk job kept him safe, but she sees only his cowardice.

A chance encounter for one of these women with a striking yet haunted officer changes everything. In a world altered beyond recognition, where not all scars are visible, this damaged and beautiful group must grasp any happiness they can find - whatever the cost."
