Win a copy of I Give It To You and a hamper of Tuscan goodies


Be transported to high summer in an historic Tuscan villa with I Give It To You, the dazzling new novel of ownership, intrigue and friendship from Valerie Martin, the Women’s Prize for Fiction-winning author of Property. Win a signed copy, plus a hamper full of delicious Italian food and wine.

Jan Vidor seems like the ideal tenant for a long summer holiday in a Tuscan villa. Unobtrusive and quietly sociable, the American academic can be relied upon to entertain herself – but her aristocratic landlady Beatrice has made a terrible mistake. A chance remark about a violent death at Villa Chiara during the war piques Jan’s writerly interest and sends her digging into the Salviati family’s tragic past. Was Beatrice’s uncle Sandro really mistaken for a partisan, or was his killer someone closer to home? Does it matter if Jan just fills in the gaps? After all, Beatrice said she could do as she liked with the story, she even said ‘I give it to you’…

Written with a deep understanding of loyalty and temptation, I Give It To You is a timeless and riveting novel about who owns a story, whether we have a right to what we inherit, and what a gift really means.

Plus win a luxury hamper of special Italian cheeses, black olive tapenade, red wine infused baked dough snacks, a bottle of Chianti, and many more gourmet treats that will transport you to Tuscany while you enjoy the book.
