Already hailed as a national tennis champion and coach in her own right, a champion of women in sport, mother of Jamie and Andy, Judy now reveals a completely new talent. The Wild Card is her first novel. It’s a compelling story about second chances, about how it’s never too late to follow a dream. Years after 38-year-old Abigail Patterson had put her promising tennis career on hold, she was unexpectedly given a wild card entry to Wimbledon. And she started winning! But Abigail also knew that it would be only a matter of time before the press would uncover the secret she’d kept hidden for so long… Absolutely authentic, gripping – and uplifting.
