What to expect

Praise for Anniki:

‘Makes me feel like I’m not the only one.’ Cherry Healey

Kate is not in a meaningful relationship. The last loving bond Kate had was with mother, who died a year ago.

Now Kate dreams of being a parent herself, and pouring all of her love into the tiny bundle of happiness that will her love unconditionally in return. Except without any partner to provide her with sperm, Kate takes matters into her own hands and decides upon a series of random encounters to get what she wants.

No one thinks this is a good idea; not her best friend, or her boss at the bookshop where she works ― not even June, one of her elderly customers. Because what they can see, and what Kate can’t, is that it isn’t a baby that she needs at all ― it’s something else entirely…

What readers are saying:

‘I really enjoyed this book…a beautiful story that a lot of people could relate to’ Zoe

Definitely one that will speak to you personally… really good story and truly makes you feel like you’re not the only one who’s adrift in life’ Chelsea

A very touching look at grief and mental health struggles that I thoroughly appreciated’ H Paige

You’ll find yourself wanting to hug Kate and her a good shake in equal measures as she barrels from one disaster to the next…A journey of self discovery and realising that all we truly want is to be happy’ Vicki
