Eve’s Books

Mum’s The Word

By Eve Branson
with Holly Peppe

Overview

Eve Branson’s life reads like a fast-paced adventure novel.

A classically trained ballet dancer, she appeared in racy West End productions, disguised herself as a boy to take glider lessons, enlisted in the Women’s Royal Navy Service, and then embarked on a series of harrowing adventures as a “Star Girl” air hostess on the ill-fated British South American Airways. Though marrying the dashing ex-Cavalry officer, Edward “Ted” Branson, brought her down to earth to raise three children, Eve’s quest for adventure never faltered.

After running several businesses, traveling the world, and doing global charity work, Eve is preparing to launch the first commercial space travelers to the edge of space in a Virgin Galactic mother ship that bears her name.

In this lively, absorbing memoir – part diary, part adventure story, part family history – Eve Branson’s formidable energy propels the reader through an extraordinary life. Along the way, she divulges some of the unorthodox but effective trade secrets behind raising one of the world’s most colourful entrepreneurs.

SARKY PUDDLEBOAT

Sarky Puddleboat

by Eve Branson
Illustrations by Wes Lowe

Overview

The five grandchildren often stayed with Granny in a house by the sea. One day they drove to the harbor to see the boats sail past, and Granny knew they were secretly wishing they had a boat of their own. Off to the London boat show they went and found two boat builders perched on a lovely wooden boat. Granny asked if they could build a boat for the grandchildren, and this is where the magical tale of Sarky Puddleboat began. There is something mysterious and magical about Sarky Puddleboat, however. Sometimes the portholes look like eyes, and the stern appears more like a tail than the back of a boat. The children are eager for adventure, but when they break Granny’s rule and leave the safety of the harbor, they find themselves in a much bigger adventure than they bargained for. Will Granny’s magic rescue the desperate sailors in time?
