Blog tour: Scrap

Welcome to the blog tour for Scrap by Kathy Biggs!

More about the book…

Life has become stale for best friends Mackie and Sharon, who never imagined they’d end up working in a scrapyard. Sharon has dreams of becoming a cruise ship star, while a browbeaten Mackie cares for his wayward daughter’s twins.

But fate takes an unexpected turn when a mysterious kid is discovered in the boot of a car. He has a remarkable gift—he can draw visions of the future, and this opens up new avenues that neither could have foreseen...

Scrap is a modern fable about the human capacity to overcome the hand life deals us and start afresh.

More about the author…

Kathy Biggs is originally from Yorkshire.

She took a summer job in Mid Wales in 1985 - and never left.

She has two grown children and lives with her husband, Paul.

After studying a number of Creative Writing courses linked to Aberystwyth University, she discovered a talent for writing.

The Luck was her first novel.

My impressions…

Put together a bunch of loveable characters and great storytelling, and you’ll get a book that will warm your heart. Taking risks and starting from scratch can be scary but this novel shows you that anything is possible when you are surrounded by good friends and blessed with a little bit of magic! A moving and memorable story.

Three words to describe it. Quirky. Uplifting. Moving.

Do I like the cover? Yes, it’s intriguing.

Have I read any other books by the same author? No, but her debut novel – The Luck – sounds good too.
