It began with a promise . . .

Matilda Bell is left heartbroken when she falls out with her beloved grandfather just before he dies. Haunted by regret, she makes a promise that will soon change everything . . .

When spirited former singing star Reenie Silver enters her life, Mattie seizes the opportunity to make amends. Together, Mattie and Reenie embark on an incredible journey that will find lost friends, uncover secrets from the glamorous 1950s and put right a sixty-year wrong.

Meet The Cast - #5: Joanna and Jack 

Every protagonist needs a support network. In Searching for a Silver Lining, Mattie Bell has her older sister, Joanna Bell-Jones and much loved cousin Jack. When I first began writing the book, Joanna was a much smaller character than she became. I worked to build her relationship with Mattie and now I think what they share is one of the loveliest sibling pairings I’ve ever written. Joanna seems to have the perfect life, but a twist in her life leads to Mattie coming to her rescue. She’s a mother of two who is also unofficial coper for the Bell family. Through the book, we see more of her story and I think readers will love her!

Jack is a cheeky chap! Good-looking and gifted, he adores his cousins and provides support and advice for Mattie. I had so much more of his story appear than could fit in this book, so I think I might have to return to him at some time in the future.

My dream casting for Joanna in the film of Searching for a Silver Lining (which, you know, has to happen…) would be Katy Carmichael (best known for roles in Coronation Street and Spaced) – she is brilliant and is actually narrating the audiobook of Searching for a Silver Lining, which I’m over the moon about! For Jack, my dream casting would be Arthur Darvill (from Broadchurch and Doctor Who) – handsome, witty and rather lovely!
