The True Story of Maddie Bright :: Giveaway ::

The True Story of Maddie Bright – by Australian writer Mary-Rose MacColl.  

You will love the key character Maddie (old and young) as her story sweeps through time and intersects with the lives of Edward VIII and Princess Diana, two of the most loved and hated figures of the twentieth century.  

Sweeping fascinatingly through history from WW1 to the early  21st century, you’ll get caught up in the genuine hysteria of ‘The Digger Prince” Royal Tour of Australia – some 99 years ago, when Prince Edward visited 110 towns and cities in less than two months. 

The True Story of Maddie Bright is also a moving and cautionary tale for our times – about the cult of celebrity in its many forms.

Mary-Rose MacColl says, “It’s called the TRUE story and obviously it’s a novel and novelists have no duty of care to history but I like to stick to historical fact wherever I can and when it comes to real people, I research them pretty thoroughly to understand them enough to have them walk around in the novel believably.’

This novel is available in stores now.
