She dreams of a better life.
Trapped in a horrible job with a horrible boss she just wants to have fun.
The smiling stranger might be the one.
Her friends think he's keeping secrets, but it’s too late because she’s falling in love.

Too broke to strike out on her own, Josie's fed up sharing a tiny house with family and a swearing budgie. She wants to glam up with glitter and have some fun.
But this is 1970s Liverpool, everyone she knows is broke, and when she's not digging behind the cushions for a bit of loose change, she's dodging her bus fare with a cheeky grin.
Her new boyfriend, Mick, brings hope. He’s got kind eyes and a funny, sexy grin.
He’s generous too and always buys her friends a drink.
But her friends are suspicious.
They're not the only ones, and her family want to check him out.
Mick makes Josie laugh, but somewhere deep down she knows there's something funny about Mick.
But someone's following Josie, and they're not funny at all.
Can Josie still stay smiling when her world's about to explode?

The Sunshine Girl is a funny and entertaining fiction story set in gritty 1970s, Liverpool.
A real page-turner - you won’t be able to put it down because you'll love the fun and nostalgia of this heartwarming story.

Grace Jolliffe’s first novel, Piggy Monk Square, was shortlisted for the Commonwealth New Writers Prize, the film rights were optioned by Willy Russell, writer of Shirley Valentine and the adaptation was broadcast on RTE's Book on One.
Grace was born and brought up in inner-city Liverpool. Her mother was born in Liverpool, and her father was born in Ireland.
Like many others, her father followed the emigration trail from Ireland in the 1950’s and arrived in Liverpool on the cattle boat.
He met her mother soon after and they lived in Toxteth for twenty-five years.
The family became returning emigrants as they moved back to Wicklow in Ireland when Grace was a teenager.
Grace now lives with her husband in Ireland and spends most of her time writing, with occasional breaks to go walking, and to take photographs of the Wild Atlantic Way where she lives.
Grace put her early memories to good use. She loves writing about Liverpool and has lots more stories to come.
