Something To Your Advantage – Mabel McCarthy
About the Author
When Virginia Coles receives a solicitor’s letter telling her there is 'something to your advantage' in her grandfather's will, she hopes that the generous legacy will ensure a happy and secure future for herself and her husband, Tony. Upon discovering Tony's infidelity Virginia flees to London, then to Wix Hill House where she meets farm manager Bill Kirby, the man she falls hopelessly in love with. Virginia finds that the path of true love is far from smooth and she must experience great joy and deep sadness before she finds the strength to turn her life around. Something To Your Advantage is a charming story of true friendships which stand the test of time set against the backdrop of life in post-war Britain.
Mabel grew up in a coal mining town in the Welsh valleys at the start of the Second World War. One
of nine children, times were very tough, and life was hard and growing up in an age of ‘make-do'
Mabel learnt to use her imagination writing short plays to be acted out in an old garden shed, where
the local community would gather for some respite from the horrors of the outside world.
“Mabel McCarthy has the dialogue and narrative perfect for post-war Britain, keeping the plot clean
of bad language and unnecessary intimate scenes, therefore reaching a huge audience of readers
who would appreciate this story. I would highly recommend this interesting and captivating book
filled with so many real-life events, and although sad at times it's a great 'feel good' book that will
definitely, have you smiling at the end.” – 5* Miriam Smith
