Grazia Book Club: WIN one of 15 Copies of The Hand that First Held Mine

26 August 2011

Forget fretting over this summer's beach reads, because we've joined forces with our pals at Waterstones to bring you lucky lot the chance to win the Book of the Week from Grazia's 10 Hot Reads every Friday! And the latest book up for grabs is The Hand that First Held Mine by Maggie O'Farrell. Here's a quick synopsis to whet your appetite:

A gorgeously written story of love and motherhood, this is a tour de force from one of our best loved novelists. When the sophisticated Innes Kent turns up on her doorstep, Lexie Sinclair realises she cannot wait any longer for her life to begin, and leaves for London. There, at the heart of the 1950s Soho art scene, she carves out a new life. An extraordinary portrait of two women, separated by fifty years, but connected in ways that neither could ever have expected.   

To win one of fifteen copies of The Hand that First Held Mine, just answer the question below! And, to download a sample chapter of the book, head to, where you can also purchase a copy if you're not one of the lucky fifteen to win.
