SATURDAY SIGNING – meet author Fran Hill

20 May 2023 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Come and meet author Fran Hill, who will be signing copies of her new book, Cuckoo in the Nest.

Funny and poignant, Cuckoo in the Nest is inspired by Fran Hill’s own experience of being fostered. A glorious coming of age story set in the summer of 1976.

‘A Warm and wonderful story’ ADELE PARKS

‘Vivid, funny, nostalgic and utterly charming’ VERONICA HENRY

It’s the heatwave summer of 1976 and 14-year-old would be poet Jackie Chadwick is newly fostered by the Walls. She desperately needs stability, but their insecure, jealous teenage daughter isn’t happy about the cuckoo in the nest and sets about ousting her.

When her attempts to do so lead to near-tragedy – and the Walls’ veneer of middle-class respectability begins to crumble – everyone in the household is forced to reassess what really matters.
