Win a toaster and kettle set from Swan

 single ladies jacaranda

To celebrate the paperback publication of Joanna Nell’s heartwarming and moving novel, The Single Ladies of Jacaranda Retirement Village, Hodder & Stoughton are giving one lucky gransnetter the chance to win a gorgeous toaster and kettle set from Swan and a copy of the book, together worth over £100.

Within this charming tale of love and friendship, 79-year-old Peggy Smart learns that it’s never too late to grow old disgracefully. Her life revolves around aqua aerobics and appointments with her doctor. Following a very minor traffic accident, things have turned frosty with her grown-up children and she is afraid they are trying to take away her independence.

As a woman of a certain age, she fears she has become invisible, even to men in their eighties. But a chance encounter with an old school friend she hasn't seen in five decades - the glamourous fashionista Angie Valentine - sets Peggy on an unexpected journey on self-discovery. 

Can she channel her 'inner Helen Mirren' and find love and friendship in her twilight years?

The Single Ladies of Jacaranda Retirement Village is published by Hodder & Stoughton and is available to buy online and in all good bookshops.
