Thank you to the many entrants for our Nina Bawden competition in memoriam from late last month. The number (and the express enthusiasm) of readers who entered is a lovely testament to the literary legacy Nina Bawden left.
As everybody knew, the answer to the question What is the title of Nina Bawden’s prize-wining novel about a brother and sister evacuated to Wales during World War II? was Carrie’s War.
Copies of The Witch’s Daughter (1966) were won by Andrea Peace and Jo Azurite.
Copies of A Handful of Thieves (1967) were won by Paula Faircloth and Emma Hogan,
And The Runaway Summer (1969) was won by Caroline Hadley.
Congratulations to them, thanks again to all who tried their hand, and please do look out for a much-trailered but genuinely forthcoming procession of prize giveaways from the Finds Towers trove…
