Giveaway (INT): Maggie’s Five by Sandra Fitzgerald DRAWN


Back in October I reviewed Sandra Fitzgerald’s wonderful book, Maggie’s Five and the delightful Sandra is offering up two paperback copies for people to win! This is an amazing book that beautifully explores a mother’s grief through great characters and a storyline that is captivating and will stay with you after you have finished reading. The writing is real, emotional, and heartbreaking at times, but it is also filled with love, surprises, and realising your own strength. It grabs you from the start and takes you on an enthralling journey alongside Maggie. To enter just follow the instructions below and go in the running to win a copy of Maggie’s Five!

I had a great life. Not perfect, but really good. I was happy.
I had a husband and two children. But now I’ve got Red.
He’s using me but, that’s okay, because I’m using him too, only for a different reason.
He wants sex and leverage. I want numb.
But then Luke came back.
Don’t be stupid. Luke’s not my husband. My husband is dead, like my children.
Luke came back and things have started changing. And I think, maybe, that I’m okay with change, but I’m worried it’s too late, that I might be too far down the Rabbit Hole.
I’m Maggie Cartwright, and this is my story. But be warned, it may not be the happy ever after you dream of.

    Mary Lennox’s journey towards healing and fulfillment in The Secret Garden was very touching and inspiring.

    My Brilliant Career by Miles Franklin really took me on an emotional journey.

    The whole story has the character going on one too but I just remember being so affected by it. I know it got to me on a larger level but I am not sure how, I can only say it kind of opened my mind up a bit.

      I love books that do that, when you can’t explain how they’ve affected you but the have somehow. It’s pretty amazing a book can do that. I have yet to read My Brilliant Career but I have heard good things.
