A note for readers
September 29, 2014

Hello again – a note to all of you who may be reading (or about to read) Hello from the Gillespies. There are two blank pages halfway through the book. Please don’t worry when you come across them, they are deliberate! Without giving away any spoilers, the blank pages happen just after an event involving Angela, hinting at something that will soon become clear as the rest of the story unfolds… I hope you all enjoy it to the very last page.

Warmest wishes and happy reading,
Monica McInerney

Product Description

For more than thirty years, Angela Gillespie has sent friends and family around the world an end-of-the-year letter titled 'Hello from the Gillespies'. It's always been cheery and full of good news. This year, Angela surprises herself – she tells the truth.

The Gillespies are far from the perfect family that Angela has made them out to be. Her husband is coping poorly with retirement. Her 32-year-old twins are having career meltdowns. Her third daughter, badly in debt, can't stop crying. And her ten-year-old son spends more time talking to his imaginary friend than to real ones.

Without Angela, the family would fall apart. But when Angela is taken from them in a most unexpected manner, the Gillespies pull together – and pull themselves together – in wonderfully surprising ways.
