Launch Party for 'If You Were the Only Girl'

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 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.

Nothing like the feel and smell of a brand new book

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.

A novel idea - anyone for cake?

  1. This book was one of those books that I really loved writing and I had no idea of a title for it. I am useless with titles. My editor, Kate came up with this one and I hated it, thought it too long and well just didn't like it. So. I did what I always do and took it to my friends the Novelistas at our monthly meet. I told them about the title, expecting them to feel as I did, but to my utter amazement they loved it. So much so that they burst into song and sang it through twice with great gusto much to the surprise of the hotel staff (though they are used to us doing odd things? From then on I began to love that title and book and so did many others for it sold extremely well. If you haven't a copy and would like one the kindle is on sale in Amazon for 99p today.


We love to hear from you, so don't be shy . . .
