Next year we’re publishing an absolutely fantastic fiction debut – Cowgirl, by Giancarlo Gemin – a funny, moving story about communities coming together and finding happy endings in unexpected places. We’ve just had stunning cover and inside proofs arrive at the Crow’s Nest – and here’s what’s in store for readers…
When her search for the scene of a perfect childhood day takes her up into the surrounding hills, Gemma is forced into a meeting with the legendary Cowgirl. Everyone at school knows she’s a weirdo: the only conversations she has are with the twelve cows on her dad’s farm. But with her abrupt arrival in Gemma’s life, everything starts to look different. And with her only friends in mortal danger of the abbatoir, it turns out she and Gemma have a mission on their hands.
