Win a copy of The Hope Flower

Looking for a new read? Victorian author Joy Dettmman has launched her latest book, The Hope Flower and thanks to Pan Macmillan we have a copy to giveaway!

From the bestselling author of Mallawindy and the Woody Creek series comes a story of love and survival.

Lori Smyth-Owen isn’t your average teenager – as you’d expect from the only girl in a family of twelve. Or they were a family, until their father took his own life to escape his bed-bound wife, too obese to leave her room. Lori and her remaining brothers raise themselves away from the gaze of the authorities, realising that though abandoned, they are now in charge. In time, their mother emerges, after losing two-thirds of her body weight. But does she bring with her the seed of hope for a better future, or will all hell break loose?

‘The texture of the writing as well as the mind-boggling plots give her books a fatally addictive attraction’ Saturday Age.
