Separated by history,
linked by a twist of fate
It's London 2019 and Frances Gardiner MP is distracted from affairs of state by affairs of the heart: a new love affair and her ailing mother.
When trouble erupts on the Cooper, a sink estate in her South London constituency, she misjudges the public mood. Disaster looms.
In 1643 the Cooper was farmland, idyllic home of the Gardiner family. But the Civil War breaks out and in brutal circumstances, feisty Elizabeth Gardiner boards a sailing ship for the perilous voyage to America.
Will Frances salvage her love affair—or her career? Does Elizabeth survive? And who's the enigmatic American who arrives to intern for Frances that fateful summer?
Former MP Sally Keeble weaves a captivating story of two women in two ferocious times, with one dream.
She, You, I - Sally's debut novel
She, You, I tells the story of Skye Stanhope's search for the truth about her family over three generations.
And as Skye strips away the layers of secrecy - in a journey that takes her from Edinburgh, to London, and then a coffee cart beside the sea— she finds emotional scars that never healed. Each woman's story is written in her own voice, unique and authentic.
"A gem of a novel," and "a book of our time" say readers and reviewers. It's a page-turner of a novel about life, love and women finding freedom.
Available on Amazon and through your local bookshop.
A poignant story of love and redemption, the novella takes a deep dive into the emotional life of a woman finding herself after an unhappy marriage.
Flora's story is played out against the kaleidoscope of sounds, sights and social changes of the 1960s, and the novella comes with a special '60s playlist.
Flora's Choice is available free for everyone who sign's up for Sally's newsletter. Sign up now and get the novella delivered free to your inbox.
