3 copies of The Women Who Wouldn't Leave

Two women. A community under threat. Can they save their home?

In the peaceful Worcestershire village of Stonecastle, Matilda Reynolds lives a quiet, contented life with her animals for company. Then a fall lands her in hospital, and she must rely on her strange young neighbour, Connie, for help looking after her home.

Connie is coming to terms with her own trauma, and she doesn’t trust easily. But just as the two women embark on an unlikely friendship, the community that brought them together comes under threat.

As they fight to save their beloved estate from a greedy developer, Connie and Matilda discover they have more in common than they thought…

    I’m a Lincolnshire lass through and though. I was born here, went away to college with ambitions to travel the world and threatening never to return. However, within a week of finishing college I was introduced to someone who was prepared to teach a penniless newly qualified teacher to drive. Six weeks later we were engaged (without any driving lessons given) and on Wednesday we celebrated 54 years of marriage and living in rural Lincolnshire…..our home and there really is no place like it!

    Yorkshire. It was somewhere that always fascinated me and I felt a sense of longing to live there, even as a child growing up in London. It felt like my rightful place. I went to uni in Yorkshire and, although I went south for a bit after graduating I moved permanently to the east coast of Yorkshire more than 20 years ago and I love it. It feels like I belong.

    I love Northamptonshire where I live because it is very beautiful! Due to it’s central location in the country, it is easy to visit London for days out or equally seaside spots in Norfolk or Lincolnshire! We have lots of pretty villages and countryside but also market towns for shopping and leisure.

    I love Cornwall, even though that might be grounds enough for divorce in our house, as hubby much prefers the Oxfordshire Cotswolds.

    Neither are our counties of birth (which are Wiltshire & Hampshire respectively), but I love to listen to the sound of the waves pounding a rocky coastline, whilst hubby much prefers the peaceful tranquillity of woodland and countryside walking.

    It’s a tough choice between Northumberland, Cumbria and Yorkshire, but I think Yorkshire just edges it. We recently spent a few days walking in the Dales and it was glorious.

    I live in Oxfordshire, such a diverse county, with beech woods, hills, the Rivers, Thames, Windrush and beautiful towns, Oxford, Henley-on-Thames, Banbury. Love living here!

    Dorset. Every time I go there I fall a little bit more in love with it and it’s finally knocked Cumbria and Oxfordshire of joint top spot.

    I live on the Devon and Cornwall border so for obvious reasons they are my fave counties, so scenic. x

    I do like a book about determined women, these two characters sound great.
    My favourite county is West Sussex where luckily i live. We have the English Channel, the South Downs, historical towns with a buzzing, modern, cafe & arts culture, & frequent sunshine.

    I love Wiltshire where I have lived for 30 years now. We have a great mix of old and modern.
    I also love the fact that we now have Bert’s Books locally.

    Funnily enough Worcestershire is my favourite county! I spent all my childhood In Malvern and revisit as often as I can as my sisters and their families still live there. The Malvern hills are so beautiful and I would explore them every weekend when I was young.

    I love Sussex because it has sea, green rolling hills and fields of corn, plus lots of interesting places to visit

    Being half Cornish, my favourite county has to be Cornwall! There are so many beautiful places there & I love a Cornish pasty & a Cornish cream tea jam on first!)
