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.

Review:

A winning wartime romp . . . as hilarious as it is moving. Emmy is truly charming. When her upper lip finally wobbles, the reader’s will, too. In the end, the novel’s spirit is madly winning, and its foregrounding of wartime women seems spiffingly modern., Guardian

The sweetest, most uplifting, lovely book about courage, friendship, love . . . It'll be huge; it deserves to be -- Marian Keyes, author of The Break

This story of female friendship is just the tonic for that jaded feeling that the world is ugly and mad., The Times

If I had only known how much I was going to adore Dear Mrs Bird, I wouldn’t have gobbled it down all at once. Funny, fresh, and touching, Dear Mrs Bird is a treat of a read. It has ruined me for all the books I’m supposed to be reading. Where will I find another novel so fresh and delightful? -- Annie Barrows, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

A joyfully uplifting and optimistic novel . . . a timely story of courage and good humour in adversity., Observer

A marvellous treat. Charming and delightful. -- Nina Stibbe, author of Love, Nina

When we need it most, Dear Mrs Bird is a wonderful, uplifting novel and, like its heroine, its breathless, giddy tone has real depth and heart. In the very worst of times, Britain’s ‘finest generation’ always found the light in the darkness, which is an important message worth remembering during our own worst times. -- Sarra Manning, Red

Here’s a refreshing take on the Second World War novel. Dear Mrs Bird is charming without being twee, full of fun and heart, and will being you to tears. -- Sarah Shaffi, Stylist

Dear Mrs Bird is an adorable novel, charming, funny, and uplifting . . . Catch a cold immediately and retire to bed with it -- Louisa Young, author of My Dear I Wanted To Tell You

Irresistibly charming and delightful -- Kate Eberlen, author of Miss You

Book Description:

An irresistibly funny, charming and moving debut from a sensational talent, one of the best-loved and most talked about books of the year
