Shining a Spotlight on BBNYA’s Silver Winner: Sins of the Father by Sharon Bairden

And the 2nd place BBNYA winner for 2021 is…

Book Info


Lucas Findlay thinks he has struck gold when he marries Rebecca, but she married him for one reason only – to destroy him.


When her past comes back to haunt her, Rebecca begins to disconnect from herself and the world around her. As secrets are unearthed, she begins to fear for her sanity… and her life.


With her world unravelling around her, Rebecca clings to her determination to make Lucas pay, whatever the cost.


But someone must pay for the sins of the father…

A chilling page-turner from a sharp new Scottish voice.

By day Sharon Bairden is the Services Manager in a small, local independent advocacy service and has a passion for human rights; by night she has a passion for all things criminal. She blogs about books at Chapter in My Life and is delighted to be crossing over to the other side of the fence to become a writer. Sharon lives on the outskirts of Glasgow, has two grown up children, a grandson, a Golden Labrador and a cat. She spends most of her spare time doing all things bookish, from reading to attending as many book festivals and launches as she can. She has been known to step out of her comfort zone on the odd occasion and has walked over burning coals and broken glass – but not at the same time!

Congratulations to Sins of the Father by Sharon Bairden!

BBNYA, the Book Bloggers Novel of the Year Award, is a competition for indie authors (both self-published and published by small indie presses) and sponsored by the Folio Society, the maker of beautiful illustrated collectible editions of the world’s great works of fiction and non-fiction.

The contest is judged by a large and diverse panel of book bloggers from all around the world. Our goal is to give underappreciated, lesser-known authors a chance to gain some recognition without being overshadowed by the big names, but also show the world the power of book bloggers!

The sign-ups will soon be open for the 2022 BBNYA competition, be it for authors to enter their books, or for bloggers wanting to be part of the new panel, so keep your eyes peeled!!
