Victoria-Vanstone-2-

Victoria bares all in this hilarious, yet poignant memoir.  You may blush, you may be confronted, but you will definitely be entertained and inspired by Victoria’s story.  First and foremost, she is a brilliant writer, and her story is a compelling and entertaining tale.

Victoria Vanstone was trapped in a cycle of binge drinking and hangxiety. In this hilarious and heartfelt memoir, she charts her transition from party girl to parent, and how she eventually chose love over liquor.

Victoria Vanstone is the host of Sober Awkward , a popular comedy podcast that tracks two former party animals as they navigate life without booze. Victoria started writing on the day she gave up alcohol and became a renowned over-sharer on her blog  drunkmummysobermummy.com . The reformed ‘party girl’ is now on a mission to help others stuck in a pattern of normalised social binge drinking. Originally from Reading in the UK, Victoria now lives on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland with her brood of uncontrollable children, a rather confused dog, and a very patient husband.

THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
MARY-LOU STEPHENS

Mary-Lou is a great friend of us all at Annie’s Books.  We met her when she was an on-air journalist with ABC Sunshine Coast where she was a presenter and music director.  Mary-Lou was also a musician, and these skills are evident in her lyrical prose!  This is her second novel, the first being THE LAST OF THE APPLE BLOSSOM, which achieved great success, and she also penned an hilarious yet poignant memoir SEX, DRUGS AND MEDITATION.

Synopsis:

Love, friendship and dangerous secrets in the early years of Cadbury’s Tasmanian factory.

It’s 1921, and after years of working for Cadbury’s at Bournville, Dorothy Adwell is on her way to a new adventure in the colonies, helping to establish the Firm’s new Australian factory. A promotion and a fresh start are just what she needs after the horrors of the Great War and the loss of her beloved husband. During the long sea voyage, she meets Thomas and is immediately drawn to him. The war has left Thomas damaged, both mentally and emotionally, and Dorothy vows to help him – if only he will let her.

Maisie Greenwood is the oldest daughter of a war widow, living on a pittance in the Hobart suburb of the Glebe. Her mother’s health is failing, and with two younger siblings depending on her the security of a job at the brand-new Cadbury’s factory is a godsend. With Dorothy’s mentorship and her budding romance with fellow worker Frank, life begins to look a little sweeter.

Cadbury’s competitors have one goal: to steal the recipe for Dairy Milk, the most popular chocolate in the world. But the recipe is kept in a vault and the few who know it are legally bound to never divulge its secret. When chocolate spies target the new factory, Dorothy and Maisie become caught up in their plot. Can they protect the recipe, help those they love and fulfil their own dreams?

A tangled web of ambition and intrigue melts into a tale as delicious and rich as chocolate.
