My turn on the blog tour today and I’m giving away a copy of this lovely book to anyone who can tell me why they’d like the book. Either here in the comments section or on Twitter. Winner chosen in a weeks time.
Five friends in their fifties find themselves dealing with unforeseen upheaval as they uncover long-hidden and devastating family secrets. Meanwhile, the world around them seems to be spinning out of control.
The events of It’s Who We Are take place between October 2016 and June 2017, against a backdrop of all the political uncertainty and change in the UK, Europe and America.
The story is set in East Anglia, London and Ireland, and is about friendship, kindness and identity. Most importantly, it highlights how vital it is to reach for what enhances rather than depletes you.
About The Author
Christine Webber originally trained as an opera singer but had to re-think her career plans when her voice professor told her: `Your voice is OK, but your legs are very much better!’ Musical theatre beckoned. There was some success. But not much. In 1979, she became a news presenter for Anglia TV. At last she had found something she enjoyed that other people thought she was good at. It was such a happy relief that she stayed for 12 years. Towards the end of that period, In Honour Bound, her first novel, was published. After leaving Anglia Television, she became an agony aunt for various publications including TV Times, Best, Dare and BBC Parenting. And she wrote a relationship advice column for The Scotsman and one for Woman, called Sexplanations. She also regularly broadcast advice on Trisha, The Good Sex Guide… Late and from the BBC’s Breakfast sofa. During her `problem page’ years, she decided to train as a psychotherapist. This led to her having a practice in Harley Street. Christine has written twelve non-fiction books including How to Mend a Broken Heart and Too Young to Get Old. She has also ghosted and consulted on several celebrity books. But her intention was always to find time to return to writing fiction. In 2016, she published a novel about romance in mid-life called Who’d Have Thought It? – this new novel also explores what it is to be fifty-something (or older) in today’s turbulent world.
