We’re thrilled to announce that Editorial Director Emily Gowers has acquired World English Language rights for a gripping women’s fiction novel by Brooke, from agent Hannah Todd at Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency. Her new novel will be released in March 2025. When a single mother and her young daughter face homelessness, they resort to sleeping in the hospital where she works as a cleaner. Can their discovery there by a gruff old man change everyone’s lives for the better?

Brooke says,

“Working with Storm and Emily last year was everything I hoped it would be. Clever editing, beautiful covers, giggly zooms and reaching wonderful readers. I cannot wait to do it all over again with a book I hope breaks many hearts and pieces them together anew.”

Emily says,

“Brooke’s heartbreaking stories and relatable characters have resonated with readers all over the world and I am so overwhelmingly proud of the stories we have worked on together. Her latest idea gave me goosebumps when I heard it, and I cannot wait to bring this book to her fans. I can only apologise for all the ugly crying it will inspire.”
