    A.J. Pearce's debut novel Dear Mrs Bird is a funny and warming read that will take you back to London in 1940.

    Emmeline Lake and her best friend Bunty are trying to stay cheerful despite the Luftwaffe making life annoying for everyone. Emmy wants to become a Lady War Correspondent and seizes her chance when she spots a job advertisement. But after some crossed wires, she actually ends up typing letters for Henrietta Bird, the notorious agony aunt of Woman's Friend magazine.

    Mrs Bird has very clear rules: letters containing any form of unpleasantness are to be binned immediately. Emmy starts off by dismissing the problems of lovelorn readers, but eventually the thought of desperate women's questions and pleas going unanswered is too much and she decides it's the right thing to secretly write back...

    Praised by the likes of John Boyne, Marian Keyes and Annie Barrows, this charming read will warm your heart. It's a tribute to the strength of female friendship, the kindness of strangers and the art of letter writing. The time it's set in also makes it a celebration of the incredible Blitz spirit.
