If there is one thing the Novelistas enjoy more than a good book, it’s a party to celebrate the publication of a good book. This month we met up for the launch of Anne Bennett’s If You Were the Only Girl, which is already at number 25 in the bestseller chart.
|The lovely Anne Bennett with her new bestseller|
The story is about Lucy, who is forced to take a job as a scullery maid at Windthorpe House, home to the aristocratic Hetherington family. When Lucy and Clive Hetherington fall in love, they are determined that the class difference won’t keep them apart. But it is the eve of the Second World War and Hitler’s troops are gathering.

The launch was held at the Travellers Inn, in North Wales, and after we'd toasted the book’s success we all enjoyed Anne’s wonderful chocolate cake.
