Thrown by Sara Cox

The wise and gloriously big-hearted debut novel from the much-loved broadcaster, Sara Cox


Becky: a single mum who prides herself on her independence.  She knows from painful experience that men are trouble.
Louise: a loving husband, gorgeous kids.  She ought to feel more grateful.
Jameela: all she’s ever done is work hard, and try her best.  Why won’t life give her the one thing she really wants?
Sheila: the nest is empty, she dreams of escaping to the sun, but her husband seems so distracted.

The inhabitants of the Inventor’s Housing Estate keep themselves to themselves.  There are the friendly ‘Hellos’ when commutes coincide and the odd cheeky eye roll when the wine bottles clank in number 7’s wheelie bin, but it’s not exactly Ramsay Street.

The dilapidated community centre is no longer the beating heart of the estate that Becky remembers from her childhood.  So the new pottery class she’s helped set up feels like a fresh start.  And not just for her.

The assorted neighbours come together to try out a new skill, under the watchful eye of their charismatic teacher, Sasha.  And as the soft unremarkable lumps of clay are hesitantly, lovingly moulded into delicate vases and majestic pots, so too are the lives of four women.  Concealed passions and heartaches are uncovered, relationships shattered and formed, and the possibility for transformation is revealed.

Peer & Press Reviews

Oh my GOD, it’s GORGEOUS.  Funny, warm, all about people.  Has the same generosity-of-spirit she does.  You’ll LOVE it.

Marian Keyes

Riotous, unpredictable and lovely.

Jo Brand

It’s full of priceless pith and whip-crack observation, but has wonderful warmth at its core too.

Mel Giedroyc
