The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted Book Club & Wine Competition

Robert Hillman’s devastating, yet heartbreakingly romantic The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted is a perfect book club title. It’s a story of love, loss, parenthood and hope. This is definitely one to cry over with your book club friends and a good glass of wine. 

With that in mind, we’ve partnered with A Wine Service to give one lucky book club the opportunity to win a case of wine: six bottles from the Blackhearts & Sparrows Classics selection, and six copies of The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted. We’ve even got you sorted with book club notes!

How to enter:  Fill in this entry form and tell us, in 250 characters or fewer, what book has been your club’s favourite and why. Did it make you laugh or cry? Why did your club decide to read that title?

The prize: One case of wine (six bottles of red or white, or a mix – your choice) from Blackhearts & Sparrows, courtesy of A Wine Service, and six copies of The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted by Robert Hillman from us.

Terms of entry: The competition runs from Friday 20 April – 11.59pm, Wednesday 2 May. Open to residents of AU only. For Text’s privacy policy, click here.

A Wine Service delivers a selection of handpicked wines for all tastes and budgets. Like the Monthly and the Saturday Paper, these wines offer new ideas and an absolute commitment to quality.
