The ideal warm, bittersweet read to get you in the festive spirit.
Warm and uplifting storytelling: a delightful treat.
I thoroughly enjoyed this gorgeous festive tale. Told in the form of interlinked short stories, it's beautifully written and highly emotionally intelligent.
Full of warmth, poignancy and a huge dose of Christmas spirit.
The best gift of all is a book you can curl up under a blanket with over the Christmas and New Year holidays and happily transport yourself. Leading the way is Laura Barnett's Gifts which is an ode to the strange and wonderful time that is Christmas told through a series of moving stories about characters trying to find gifts for awkward-yet-loved people in their lives.
This book will inspire, comfort, and move anyone who reads it.
Celebrating the power of community and exploring the emotional ups and downs the festive season can bring, it's a novel that's sure to warm the heart of any Scrooge.
This gem of a book is well observed, poignant and hopeful.
Tender and moving, Gifts is infused with Christmas magic - that bittersweet mix of joy, yearning, sadness and hope that accompanies the festive season.
