Book by Widdecombe Ann


Ann has now finished her main tour, ending on Friday with a signing at John Lewis in Bluewater where we sold 125 copies, a pretty good note to end on! She still has a further 9 events to do throughout the rest of the year. The launch party at the Imperial War Museum on 11 July went extremely well with diaries stories running in the EVENING STANDARD, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH, THE OBSERVER, THE TIMES and INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY. And just to remind you of all the publicity that she has done:Extract and first interview in Night and Day (THE MAIL ON SUNDAY), 16 June together with interviews in THE TIMES, 9 July, THE INDEPENDENT, You Ask the Questions, 25 July, THE SUNDAY EXPRESS, 7 July, THE GLASGOW HEARLD, 1 July, SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY, 7 July, METRO 60 SECOND INTERVIEW 22 July, HELLO Magazine (on the books page), YOURS MAGAZINE (Sept issue), THE SUNDAY TIMES Relative Values, STEVE WRIGHT SHOW (BBC Radio 2) 5 July, START THE WEEK (BBC RADIO 4) 8 July, C5 NEWS on 8 July, LBC, HEART 106.2FM, BBC RADIO NORTHAMPTON, BBC RADIO SCOTLAND, BBC HEREFORD AND WORCESTER, BBC RADIO WALES, BBC RADIO SUFFOLK BBC GMR, BBC RADIO YOUK, BBC RADIO WM, DREAM 107.5M, SUNDAY MERCURY (Birmingham), YORKSHIRE EVENING PRESS and THE EAST ANGLIAN DAILY TIMES. Most of the national papers have now reviewed the book and as we predictedsome of the literary editors have let their reviewers review Ann rather thanthe novel but we've also had some which have reviewed the novel producing some good reviews: 'The novel is very well structured....... Widdecombe is to be applauded for the range of her ambition within this book: the admirably large cast of characters is well handled; their dilemmas are believable and the narrative makes for compulsive reading. What is more, AN ACT OF TREACHERY seems fuelled by a genuine passion for an understanding acrosss nations and borders.'Bell Mooney, THE TIMES 'She shows insight into the difficulties of ordinary people responding to the enemy in everyday encounters and the gradual deterioration in the position of the Jewish population. Her plot has ingenious twists which surprise the reader and her prose has pace.'Sarah Curtis, THE TLS'Widdecombe's point is a powerful one: that everyone is compromised in war and that only love commands real loyalty.'Wendy Holden, THE DAILY MAIL 'Miss Widdecombe's research is good and description of life in occupied Paris convincing.'Maggie Pringle, THE EXPRESS 'An ambitious novel,...stuffed full of interesting moral themes.'Caroline Moore, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'An intriguing story, which seems destined to end in disaster until the unexpected twist in the final pages.'GOOD HOUSEKEEPING 'I fully expected to want to put this book down after the first 20 pages. By page 30, I was hooked...... Widdecombe's betrayalof life in occupied France is both graphic and moving. Her research has beenextensive and she avoids sterotypes. Her story develops gradually and impressively towards its conclusion, which although not a surprise, is still shocking.'Iain Dale, THE TRIBUNE Together with reviews in the EVENING STANDARD, DAILY TELEGRAPH and SUNDAY TIMES. We still have reviews to come in the NEW STATESMAN and THE SPECTATOR. AN ACT OF TREACHERY was also featured as one of the DA
