TIME TO SHINE:

Torbay writer Mel Menzies has already had a Sunday Times Bestseller.  In her new book she takes apart a marriage brick by brick.  This psychological mystery explores hypocrisy, forgiveness and fulfilment and it's a fascinating glimpse into the process of psychotherapy.

An uplifting and heartwarming read, Time to Shine takes its title in part from the beautiful acceptance speech made by Nelson Mandela, "We're all meant to shine . . ."
