We’re delighted to announce that Editorial Director Emily Gowers has acquired World All Language rights, including film and TV, for two more books in Phillipa’s emotional and heartwarming women’s fiction series. The fourth and fifth Temple River books will be released in 2025.

Phillipa says,

“What an absolute joy it is to work with Emily, who had brought such a depth of knowledge and experience, as well as kind guidance, to each of the first three Temple River novels. It truly made them a delight to write. To be offered a second contract is a dream come true and I cannot wait to bring new stories to life. I know that my characters are in safe hands with Emily and the wonderful Storm team.”

Emily says,

“It is such a dream to be continuing to work with Phillipa. She is such a delightful, talented and hardworking author who understands her characters and her readers so well. I am so excited to be continuing the fantastic Temple River series with her and to be bringing more of her heartbreaking stories to her fans.”
