A HAMPSHIRE publisher has just sold the foreign rights to one of its most popular books to three European countries.

Droxford’s Splendid Books, published A Greater Love by Olga Watkins and James Gillespie in 2011 and has now done deals with publishers in Italy, Spain and Croatia.

Its Italian jacket was designed by Waterlooville’s Design Image.

And now Hollywood has come knocking for the rights to the gripping wartime true love story, there’s a possibility that the book could be turned into a film.
