Winners & Finalists TPBP 2015 - 2016


The Road to Donetsk by Diane Chandler published by Blackbird Digital Books

Love story set in a community of Donetsk mining wives. In a world where millions of dollars can either wash away in a moment’s corruption, or transform the lives of the neediest, Vanessa must pit her own desire to make a difference against the chaos of a country in transition.



Finding The Rainbow by Rachel McGrath Published by Pegasus Elliot Mackenzie Publishers Ltd

Finding the Rainbow is a fascinating and honest insight into a world that most would find difficult to understand, and many would be quietly thankful not to need to. McGrath tells the story of her battle to conceive and carry a baby, with unrestricted honesty.


Milky Moments by Ellie Stoneley Published by Pinter & Martin

A beautiful book for children and their families, Milky Moments celebrates the joy of childhood and mothering, and normalises breastfeeding as a part of day-to-day life. Inspirational, intimate and fun, it is not only a book to treasure, but also one that will educate and inform — however old you are.

TPBP Beryl Bainbridge Award for Best First Time Author
