Nurse’s story proves a best­selling tale

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

FIND­ING Tip­per­ary Mary, the book co-writ­ten by our colum­nist Bar­bara Fisher, topped the book chart in WH Smith in Uxbridge last week.

The novel tells the story of her friend, district nurse Phyllis Whit­sell, who tracked down the al­co­holic mother who gave her up for adoption.

And it’s proved so pop­u­lar lo­cally that it’s even pushed bak­ing queen Mary Berry and for­mer Prime Min­is­ter Tony Blair off the top spot.

Bar­bara said: “The book is re­ally do­ing well. I was chuffed to see it in the num­ber one best­sellers slot in Uxbridge WH Smiths.

“It was funny to see Phyllis’s book had pushed Mary Berry and the Tony Blair book to num­bers two and three.”
