How to Mend a Broken Heart, the debut novel by Anna Mansell, is centred around three strangers each with a broken heart. The summary says: "Life is good for nurse Kat. That is until the man she intended to marry legs it, she's unexpectedly promoted to a position with too much responsibility, and Susan arrives on her ward under strange circumstances.
Susan is a mystery. She refuses to speak or interact with anyone, she's obsessed with a book of fairy tales, and the only name in her diary is that of Rhys - a plumber she barely knows.
Down-to-earth Rhys is trying to get his life back on track after the death of his beloved brother. His mum is his priority, but then a call from Kat brings the enigmatic Susan into his life...
As the lives of these three lost strangers intertwine, will they find a way to lay ghosts past, present and future to rest? And when the chance comes to mend their broken hearts, will they be brave enough to take it?" How to Mend a Broken Heart is on March 2017.
