It’s GIVEAWAY time!!!!
Last Summer I read and, was completely captivated by, this wonderful debut novel from Richard Roper. In celebration of the paperback publication of Something to Live For on July 23rd, Orion Fiction have very kindly given me a copy to giveaway to one VERY lucky winner.
When I reviewed this gorgeous book I said that –
Something to Live For is ultimately an uplifting and completely captivating read. It is filled with pain and tragedy but also with humour and inspiration. It will bring a tear to your eye at times but also it will make you smile. Richard Roper is quoted as saying ‘Sometimes the smallest gestures can be the most meaningful’, a lesson for all of us to take away from this novel.
Something to Live For captures something magical, something quite special. Littered with exquisite prose, it really is quite an astonishing debut. Andrew’s story begs of us all to go out and Find Our Something, that one thing that can bring a little happiness into our daily lives, however big or small that might be.

[ Book Description ]
Everybody likes Andrew. But they don’t really know him.
They know what he’s told them – that he’s happily married with two kids. Living the kind of life that’s either so boring it’s true, or so perfect it’s a lie . .
Peggy arrives in Andrew’s life in a burst of kindness and possibility. For the first time in ages, Andrew feels alive again. So now that he has everything to lose, can he risk it all and tell Peggy the truth?
A big-hearted story about love, loneliness, and the importance of taking a chance when we feel we have the most to lose.
