We are delighted to welcome Rachel Heath back for the release of her exquisite second novel, Part of the Spell. After her Costa-nominated debut, The Finest Type of English Womanhood, set in 1940s South Africa, she now turns her focus closer to home in this haunting tale of English suburbia, getting under the skin of a sleepy market town and its troubled inhabitants.
What does it mean to say you want “the quiet life” in the modern world? Rachel Heath’s fiction asks important questions but offers no easy answers, and she has the power to unsettle or delight with a subtle turn of phrase. Join us for what is sure to be a spellbinding evening, full of Heath’s unique insight and infectious charm.
