leave a comment to enter with your email address. Entries close Friday 11th October. Two more UK winners will receive a copy of the US editions of The Gilded Lily and The Lady’s Slipper. These are rare items in the UK and have integrated reading guides and beautiful covers. With family and friends I will be celebrating the release of A Divided Inheritance with a tour and afternoon tea at Leighton Hall. Leighton Hall is a beautiful old house close to where I live, and home to the famous Gillow furniture manufacturers in Georgian times.
Every owner of Leighton Hall, with one exception, has been a Roman Catholic and during Penal Times a priest was always hidden somewhere in the house. This makes it particularly appropriate venue for the launch of ‘A Divided Inheritance’ as the book is set just after the Gunpowder Plot, when Catholicism was repressed in England. The only owner of Leighton Hall to conform to the Established Church was Sir George Middleton, the last of the Middletons of Leighton, although his wife remained a staunch Recusant throughout.
The public launch is at Carnforth Bookshop which is home to 100,000 second hand books and some new ones. Please join me from 2.30 till 3.30 on Saturday 26th October where I will give a talk on the life of a historical novelist! Below you can see the inside of Carnforth Bookshop – is it any wonder that with this just down the road I probably buy more titles than I actually sell! Here is the ideal opportunity to browse their packed shelves and get yourself a bargain.
As places are limited – books take up most of the space! – please contact the bookshop on 01524 734588 to reserve your place or email firstname.lastname@example.org Don’t forget to leave a comment to win a book.
