            Synopsis

            Prickly. Stubborn. Terribly lonely. But everyone deserves a second chance…A dazzling debut for 2020 – are you ready to meet Missy Carmichael?Missy Carmichael’s life has become small.Grieving for a family she has lost or lost touch with, she’s haunted by the echoes of her footsteps in her empty home; the sound of the radio in the dark; the tick-tick-tick of the watching clock.Spiky and defensive, Missy knows that her loneliness is all her own fault. She deserves no more than this; not after what she’s done. But a chance encounter in the park with two very different women opens the door to something new.Another life beckons for Missy, if only she can be brave enough to grasp the opportunity. But seventy-nine is too late for a second chance. Isn’t it?’Bittersweet, tender, thoughtful and uplifting … I loved it’ Nina Stibbe

            Beth Morrey was inspired to write her debut novel, Saving Missy, while pushing a pram around her local park during maternity leave.

Previously Creative Director at RDF Television, Beth now writes full time. She was previously shortlisted for the Grazia-Orange First Chapter award, and had her work published in the Cambridge and Oxford May Anthologies while at university. Beth lives in London with her husband, two sons and a dog named Polly.
