To celebrate the release of Saving Missy, we are giving one lucky gransnetter the chance to win an electric kitchen mixer and a knitted dachshund throw, together worth nearly £150, plus a copy of Saving Missy. Five runners-up will also receive a copy of the book. 

Prickly. Stubborn. Terribly lonely. But everyone deserves a second chance…

Missy Carmichael’s life has become small. Grieving for a family she has lost or lost touch with, she’s haunted by the echoes of her footsteps in her empty home; the sound of the radio in the dark; the tick-tick-tick of the watching clock.

Spiky and defensive, Missy knows that her loneliness is all her own fault. She deserves no more than this; not after what she’s done. But a chance encounter in the park with two very different women opens the door to something new.

Another life beckons for Missy, if only she can be brave enough to grasp the opportunity. But 79 is too late for a second chance. Isn’t it?
