Publication Day for The Surplus Girls' Orphans

Posted on 7th January, 2021

I'm writing this on January 7th and it is publication day for The Surplus Girls' Orphans, the second in the Surplus Girls series, which I write as Polly Heron.



Publication day is always an exciting event and I'm grateful to my writer friends and colleagues who have taken to Twitter and Facebook to share the celebration.


In my next blog, I'll be sharing the Reading Group questions I've prepared to accompany the book. In the meantime, here is the blurb:




Manchester, 1922


Molly Watson has had enough. Engaged for the last three years to a penny-pinching pedant, she finally decides she'd rather be a 'surplus girl' than marry a man she doesn't truly love. Aware of the need to support herself if she is to remain single all her life, Molly joins a secretarial class to learn new skills, and a whole new world opens up to her.


When she gets a job at St Anthony's Orphanage, she befriends caretaker Aaron Abrams. But a misunderstanding leaves them at loggerheads and damages her in the eyes of the children she has come to care so deeply about. Can Molly recover her reputation, her livelihood and her budding friendship before it's too late?
