The Best Things | Mel Giedroyc

The Best Things is the fantastic debut novel from comedian, writer, actor and presenter Mel Giedroyc, which we can't wait to read!

Sally Parker is struggling to find the hero inside herself. All she wants to do is lie down. Her husband Frank has lost his business, their home and their savings, in one fell swoop.

Their bank cards are being declined. The children have gone feral. And now the bailiffs are at the door.

What does an ordinary woman do when the bottom falls out? Sally Parker is about to surprise everybody. Most of all herself. A big-hearted story of a family on the brink, The Best Things is a life-affirming tale of failing, falling and finding a way back up.
