When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early 40s, the town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

Alan Titchmarsh first found fame as a presenter on British television. His long-standing career in horticulture led to media attention and he subsequently hosted several gardening programmes. Perhaps finding the ‘pen mightier than the spade’ he has in recent years, turned his hand to authorship: first writing gardening tomes, followed by autobiographical works and latterly, fiction.

You may know him as an actor, but Alan Cumming is also a singer, director, producer and author. His New York Times best-selling memoir Not My Father's Son is the gripping story of his complicated relationship with his father and the mystery of his grandfather's untimely death. Suspenseful, brave, moving and honest, it's a book about finding good through bad and light beyond darkness.
