The Richard & Judy Book Club Pick and Sunday Times Bestseller, Dear Mrs Bird, now with a beautiful festive design and an exclusive new piece by the author.

London, 1941. Amid the falling bombs Emmeline Lake dreams of becoming a fearless Lady War Correspondent. Unfortunately, Emmy instead finds herself employed as a typist for the formidable Henrietta Bird, the renowned agony aunt at Woman’s Friend magazine. Mrs Bird refuses to read, let alone answer, letters containing any form of Unpleasantness, and definitely not those from the lovelorn, grief-stricken or morally conflicted.

But the thought of these desperate women waiting for an answer at this most desperate of times becomes impossible for Emmy to ignore. She decides she simply must help and secretly starts to write back – after all, what harm could that possibly do?

This edition of Dear Mrs Bird has been specially designed for the Christmas season and includes exclusive new content: 'The Real Henrietta Bird's Christmas Pudding' for readers to enjoy.

'The sweetest, most uplifting, lovely book about courage, friendship, love' – Marian Keyes

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.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. "The sweetest, most uplifting, lovely book about courage, friendship, love . It'll be huge; it deserves to be" Marian Keyes, author of The Break London, 1940. Emmeline Lake and her best friend Bunty are trying to stay cheerful despite the Luftwaffe making life thoroughly annoying for everyone. Emmy dreams of becoming a Lady War Correspondent and when she spots a job advertisement in the newspaper she seizes her chance - but after a rather unfortunate misunderstanding, she finds herself typing letters for the formidable Henrietta Bird, the renowned agony aunt of Woman's Friend magazine. Mrs Bird is very clear: letters containing any form of Unpleasantness must go straight into the bin. Emmy finds herself dismissing problems from lovelorn, grief-stricken and morally conflicted readers in favour of those who fear their ankles are unsightly or have trouble untangling lengths of wool. But soon the thought of desperate women going unanswered becomes too much to bear and Emmy decides the only thing for it is to secretly write back . . . Irresistibly funny and enormously moving, Dear Mrs Bird by AJ Pearce is a love letter to female friendship, Blitz spirit, the kindness of strangers and the art of letter-writing itself.
