Happy Families (Winner of the 2020 Richard & Judy Search for a Bestseller Competition)
Julie Ma (Author)
Julie Ma's novel Happy Families has been selected as the winner of the 2020 Richard & Judy Search for a Bestseller competition. Set in a place you never read about and featuring characters you never read about, Happy Families is a tender, funny and heartwarming story for fans of Rachel Joyce, Graeme Simsion, and Gavin & Stacey. Amy's thirty-four and has just moved back in with her grandfather. Why did she give up her glittering career in the big city to go back to work in the small-town Chinese takeaway where she spent her bookish and boring childhood? It's a secret she won't tell. Just like the secret of why her grandfather, Ah Goong, and her father, TC Li, haven't spoken to each other in thirty years. Weirder still, they lived in the same small flat above the takeaway for the majority of those years, Amy's mother Joan acting as go-between and buffer. Now Amy's parents have moved, leaving her in charge of looking after the old man. But then Ah Goong collapses in the street and time is running out if Amy wants to play happy families before it's too late.
