While we love a good paperback, there's nothing quite like the thrill of getting your fiction fix delivered instantly to your best eReader.Not only are e-books normally much cheaper than shelling out for a new release hardback anyway, but eagle-eyed Kindle owners will know that Amazon do some amazing Kindle daily deals in the UK – with bestselling books reduced to less than £1.
And we could hardly contain our excitement when we learned that among today's Amazon daily deals for Kindle is Fiona Valpy's moving bestseller The Dressmaker's Gift – now reduced to just 99p.
The Dressmaker's Gift is normally £8.99 to buy in paperback. But thanks to Amazon's daily deals for Kindle, you can now read it for just 99p.
Set in 1940s Paris, the absorbing novel tells the story of three young women trying to go about their normal lives as best they can under Nazi occupation. As the women face up to some difficult choices, they must ask themselves how history will judge them.
The Dressmaker's Gift boasts almost five-star customer reviews on Amazon – with 76% of those who reviewed the novel giving it top billing. Released in October last year, the book even reached number 1 on Amazon's Historical French Fiction chart.
'You must read this book! An excellent novel with a gripping , moving storyline... I could not put it down. Very well researched, and Fiona Valpy makes the characters [come] alive,' wrote one UK reader.
Other fans of the novel called it 'Beautiful' and 'Gripping, energised and exceptional'.
woman&home's books team loved it too, calling the book, 'An intriguing and nostalgic read.'
