Mother’s Day is going to be tough this year. Last week I heard Waleed Aly, on The Project, say that the first thing he was going to do when we’re all out of isolation is hug his mother. I know how he feels.
I usually give my mother books for Mother’s Day, anyway, but this year it seems as poignant as it is appealing: the escape that reading offers has become more precious, more important, than ever.
If you’re also planning to give the gift of escape this Mother’s Day, Fremantle Press is running a special promotion, with 20% off a range of titles (see above) plus free gift-wrapping. There are some wonderful books here, and I’m delighted that Kathleen O’Connor of Paris is among them. To take advantage of the offer, visit this page, use the discount code MD2020, and order before 30 April to ensure your gift arrives on time.
Be well, be safe, and take care, everyone.
