The Wanderers by Tim Pears

The wanderers by tim pears jacket

We’re pleased to be offering five sets of Tim Pears’ The Wanderers, the beautiful questing second novel in Tim Pears’ acclaimed West Country Trilogy.

As setting is such an integral part of the novel, we would love to offer these books to library reading groups in rural areas in particular, and so priority will be given here.

As this is the second book in a trilogy we will also send the first book for you to read. But please let us know if you have already read the first book – The Horseman.

Reading groups are asked to complete the review forms they’ll receive with their books. By returning your completed forms, you’ll also have the opportunity to receive proof copies of the third book in the series.

To take part, apply before 20 Feb.
