Hi, Everyone,

I’m very excited to be able to let you know that my book, Widows, has been republished this year ahead of the film based on my characters, from Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen which is coming in the Autumn.

I’m so pleased Widows is available for people to read again. Dolly, Shirley, Linda and Bella are very dear to my heart and I do love the new cover!

You can order your copy now and it will be available in all good bookshops in the UK from 14th June. It’s actually already out in the USA, Australia and New Zealand so lucky you if you live there!

You can read more about the book here and download a sample chapter in the selection below.
