Loved the action, the planting of seeds of the story to come, the boldness of Caterina. The description of the figs is juicy and I particularly liked this line. 'She isn’t scared of anything. And even if she was — which she isn’t — but even if she was, she enjoys being afraid' I want to read more!

This extract has me wanting to read on. The writing is crisp and clear, I could feel myself in Caterina's shoes reaching for the figs.

I'm intrigued by the premise, it's an interesting angle to take, following events directly after the war, in a small village as opposed to the more obvious and well-explored larger towns and cities.

The characters and locations are well-framed and the pace of storytelling is well-done. Excellent potential here.

Congratulations Hannah on making it to the shortlist! Lovely to see your name here in the shortlistees! We met briefly on Anna Davis' Rewrite Doctor course this summer :)
