To celebrate the paperback release of the latest novel by bestselling author Nadine Dorries, Head of Zeus are delighted to be able to offer ten free copies of Shadows in Heaven to ten reading groups in exchange for reader feedback.

‘As heart-warming as it is heartbreaking, this novel is unputdownable.’ Sunday Express.

In the aftermath of the Second World War, two women await the return of the ambitious Michael Malone to the small village of Tarabeg on Ireland’s west coast. Rosie is the local schoolteacher and most people think she is promised to Michael; just a few have guessed that he has secretly begun to woo Sarah, whose brutal fisherman father would kill her if he knew. Both Rosie and Sarah love Michael, both hope to become
his wife and his choice will have fateful consequences for everyone – especially, in due course, for his young daughter.

This is the first in a new sequence of novels with a brilliant cast of characters and a story that will lead to Liverpool in Mary Kate and back to Ireland in The Seven Acres.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
