Win a hamper worth £100 and a copy of A Single Thread

 a single thread competition

We've teamed up with The Borough Press to celebrate the release of A Single Thread, the new novel by bestselling author Tracy Chevalier. One lucky gransnetter will win a delicious Luxury Afternoon Tea Hamper worth £100 from The British Hamper Company and a hardback copy of the book. 10 runners-up will also win a copy of A Single Thread.

Set in 1930s Winchester, A Single Thread follows quietly determined Violet Speedwell. Regarded by society as a ‘surplus woman’ - unlikely to marry after losing her fiancé in the Great War, Violet vows to escape her suffocating mother and start a new life in Winchester. There she falls in with a disparate group of women, who embroider kneeling cushions for the cathedral. Though her new life is far more challenging than she imagined, Violet soon learns that, fortified by tea, biscuits and a glass or two of sherry, courage can be found in the unlikeliest of places.

A Single Thread is published by The Borough Press and available to buy online and in all good bookshops.
