Readers of longstanding will know that amongst the many delights of the Autumn season comes the announcement of the DHRA's chosen Book of the Year: its pre-Christmas cracker designed to keep us all romantically inclined as we gear up for the end of the year and begin to look for stocking fillers sure to delight both our families and our loved ones. In a surprising and delightful move, DHRA President for Life Mrs Amanda J Threadbone has announced that this year's choice is Orwena Kawelste's brilliant and evocative Zulema and The Kalendar Prince, the first and latest in her brand new Eastern Promise Romance Series.
Announcing the choice, Mrs Threadbone said: "Orwena Kawelste's magnificent sweeping tale of the Orient will take you on a journey deep into the past and deep into the beating heart of Arabia. Better known for her western style 'bodice rippers' Orwena has drawn upon a lifetime's study of the customs, culture and practices of the east to create a new genre of romantic fiction which will thrill her many fans anew."
Already dubbed by the Burton Bradstock Sunday People as a "burka banger" and a "hijab hijacker", Orwena's tale is bound to please all but the most fanatical IS supporter.
Zulema and the Calendar Prince is published by the DHRA in conjunction with The Threadbone Press and is sure to be this Autumn's number one best seller.
