We are thrilled to share that Beth Morrey’s latest novel, Em & Me, is now available in hardback in the UK (Harper Collins). A story about one mother who attempts to rediscover herself and let go of her past, this deeply moving and heartfelt novel is all about the beauty of second chances and the importance of family and kindness. We can’t wait for readers to get their hands on a copy of the most joyful novel of 2022.
In the run up to publication, Beth spread Em & Me‘s message far and wide by mailing copies of the novel to bloggers to mark Kindness Day 2021 alongside a letter about the nature of kindness. She has also been interviewed for LoveReading’s LitFest, and fans will be able to read even more of Beth’s writing in short stories to be published in Woman & Home, S Magazine, My Weekly and Best Magazine in the coming weeks. Em & Me received four stars in the Sunday Express, and readers that want to hear more can attend an evening with Beth Morrey on the 17th February. Tickets can be purchased here.
Beth’s debut novel, Saving Missy, was a huge success: it was a Sunday Times bestseller, was shortlisted for the Grazia-Orange First Chapter award, and became the 7th bestselling novel of 2020.
