To win the book, just comment at the bottom of this post. I will put the names in a hat on Sunday 18th November and draw a winner. I'll send the collection anywhere in the world.
I'll throw in one of the cake boxes I bought for the Sweet Home cupcakes and something sweet (although it probably won't be a cupcake - that could get pretty messy in the mail).
If you're not sure whether the book is for you, here are a couple of excerpts from reviews:
This is a wonderful short story collection. It won Salt Publishing's Scott Prize, and it really doesn't disappoint. The stories will haunt you, and trouble you; they'll also tug on your heart strings and make you tear up. One of the stories (The Rescue) made me cry. The theme of family runs through all of the tales; Carys writes about the things people don't talk about, the hidden emotions of family life, the things that go on behind closed doors and inside the minds of children and parents.

The stories in Sweet Home work like beads on a thread, each reflecting on those around it, but each with its own distinct texture and lustre. Nothing is sugar coated. It is honest and unguarded – so far from what mummycentric websites and smug washing powder adverts would have you believe, I feel safe and reassured by all that stark reality. Sweet Home is alive, beautiful and painfully true. (Sarah Schofield)
