Gladys of Harlech by L.M.Spooner

Gladys of Harlech was first published anonymously in 1858. The novel is set during the Wars of the Roses in the mid-15th century and tells the story of Gladys, granddaughter of the last Welsh keeper of Harlech, and her family.

The Cambrian Journal praised it's "true spirit of patriotism [which penetrates... Gladys of Harlech, and gives life and vigour..., which is refreshing to contemplate."]

The White Camellia by Juliet Greenwood

Bea is expected to marry her wealthy cousin after her family has to leave Tressillion. A visit to the White Camellia tearoom finds her drawn into the suffrage campaign - will following her heart mean betraying her family? American Sybil buys Tressillion and its secrets will eventually force her and Bea together - will they be enemies or allies?

"Beautiful writing, wonderful storytelling, and onto my Books of the Year list without a moment's hesitation."
Anne, Being Anne

"The White Camellia is a moving story, portraying the lives of ordinary women who take huge risks in standing up for themselves and fighting for justice... full of suspense, mystery and engaging characters, with a small portion of romance and plenty of drama."

Clawr | Cover of The Vegetarian Tigers Of Paradise

The Vegetarian Tigers Of Paradise by Crystal Jeans

Sometimes Crissy's mum is her best friend, sometimes a woman to be frightened of.

One misstep and Crissy is ordered to pack her bags: she's off to live with Freddy Krueger on the other side of the woods...

"It's funny, it's fiery, it inhabits the voice of its unforgettable characters and imagines a world where no holds are barred."

Honno is a publisher well worth following. It concentrates on the work of women of Welsh descent or connection, a sort of Celtic Virago, and is developing a very impressive modern fiction list. Writers in Oxford Newsletter

I think there might be a bit of a fight the next time that we get something from Honno and I'd certainly like to thank them for sending this book to the Bookbag
