Last week I read a book called “The Mummyfesto” written by Linda Green.
You can find it here
Now although this book is a work of fiction it has had a profound effect on me, and hopefully my book writing.
This is a description of the book from the back cover:-
Adaptable. Dependable. Good at clearing up mess. Being a mum is perfect training to run the country…
When Sam, Jackie and Anna successfully campaign to save their lollipop lady, a TV reporter asks them if they fancy standing in the general election.
It is, of course, a crazy idea: Sam’s youngest child has an incurable disease; Jackie is desperate for another child and her mum is struggling with Alzheimer’s; and Anna’s teenage children, and marriage, are in danger of going off the rails.
But sometimes the craziest ideas turn out to be the best. And just think what they could do if they did get to run the country…
The book will possibly reduce you to tears in a couple of the chapters, where it deals with a sensitive subject, showing great sensitivity and feeling with the writing.
Overall it deals with lots of things from the back stabbing in politics, to friendships, everyday problems, death and believing you can change things.
If you’re a book reader please have a look at this book, I promise you that you won’t regret it. If you do read it then I would love to hear your thoughts on the book and the subjects it covers, either by a comment to this post or if you prefer as a direct email.
I look forward to receiving your comments on the book….
