The Other Half of My Heart – Guest Post by Stephanie Butland

Its my turn on the final day of the blog tour for ‘Letters to My Husband‘ by Stephanie Butland, published in paperback on 9th April 2015 by Black Swan/Transworld (originally published in hardback in 2014 as ‘Surrounded by Water’) and I am so excited to have the honour of an EXCLUSIVE reveal for Stephanie’s next book.

Welcome to Stephanie, who will tell you a little more

I’m really excited about THE OTHER HALF OF MY HEART, which is published this autumn. 

It’s about Bettina, a woman in her thirties who is hiding from her past. She lives above the bakery in Throckton, which she runs with passion and ambition, while negotiating a new relationship and making sure that her ailing mother is cared for. Everything is going on fairly steadily, until someone from her past shows up, and Bettina has to decide how to really face up to things she would rather forget. Bettina is new to Throckton, but readers of LETTERS TO MY HUSBAND will recognise many of the characters she spends time with, and has relationships with. 

Writing the book was brilliant fun (apart from the emotionally wracking bits…) and as part of the research I started making my own bread, and spent a lot of time thinking about how we nourish ourselves, physically and emotionally. I’m longing for readers to get their hands on this and tell me what they think!

Thank you Stephanie, and now for the exclusive cover reveal, isn’t it gorgeous?

The Other Half of My Heart will be published by Black Swan on 22 October 2015

    Oh, that's such a great cover. It's really simple and effective and I love the colours but fits so well to the outline of the story you told us. Looking forward to reading it in the Autumn, maybe with some fresh homemade bread dripping with butter!

    I can't wait! Looking forward to another visit to Throckton, so clearly painted in my mind in the first book.
