Amanda Hodgkinson - 22 Britannia Road



Amanda Hodgkinson, is a British expat living in Gascony, housewife, mother, journailist, singer and poet, and now author of a very popular novel, 22 Brittania Road. Her book is described as one of the most searing debuts to come along in years, a powerful story of primal maternal love, overcoming hardship, and, ultimately, acceptance - a story that will pierce your heart!


Amanda’s novel tells of a young Polish couple trying to reconstruct their family in post-war Ipswich and the book has gone on to win the Orange New Writer’s award and was also chosen by Waterstone’s as one of 2011's must-read debuts.
