We’re excited to announce that Mary Gibson’s debut novel, Custard Tarts and Broken Hearts, has been chosen for World Book Night 2015.  The story of a factory girl in Bermondsey through WW1 is one of 20 novels selected by The Reading Agency to take part in the event, which aims to shine a light on volunteering and social action. On the 23rd April, thousands of volunteers will be encouraged to gift the chosen novels, including Custard Tarts and Broken Hearts, to local communities in an effort to inspire others to read.

‘As the approach of the Great War encroaches upon Britain, factory girl Nellie Clark has a tough choice to make. We’re taken deep into her struggle and First World War London in this moving, tender and warm novel. Perfect for an older generation who may have lost their love of reading.’ World Book Night
