Summer 2023 News Letter

Dear Friends,

Summer conjures up sunshine and blue skies, picnics and parades, bouquets and laughter. It’s the time of year when flowers are in full bloom, birds in full song, nature bursting with life. I hope you’re well too, and finding time to enjoy the fresh new season.

The Wedding Dress Sewing Circle now in Paperback!

I've been bombarded with such lovely thanks for this treasure of a book, and this week it comes out in paperback in the US, the UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. It's a book about clothes rationing in the Second World War, wrapped around three brave women and set in the quintessential English village, loaded with drama and romance.

What have I been doing?

I have been finishing my next book, which comes out at the beginning of 2024. I’m so excited about this, but you’ll have to wait until nearer the time for more details. Suffice to say, it’s set in WW2, but this time in London during the Blitz in 1940. My grandmother used to tell stories about being in the city and having to dive into the underground station to shelter when the bombers came thick and fast overhead. I can hardly bear to imagine how frightening it must have been. Look out for more about the new book on my website:

Book Six is in the pipeline! Yes, I've been busy thinking through ideas for my next book, and already one very special story has come to the fore. I read about it many years ago in a memoir, and with a little time, a lot of thought, and some healthy imagination, all the characters, the settings, and that feeling of the era can be brought back to life.

My summer is filled with lovely trips away with my family and a writing retreat with my JHU writing friends. I’m looking forward to some wonderful chats about writing, as well as getting some great new book recommendations.

Thank you again so much for all your messages and support. There is nothing so special as knowing how much my stories mean to you.

Have a wonderful summer! With warmest wishes, Jennifer
