Susan Fletcher & Hannah Beckerman
A sparkling lunch for women which brings together good food, good books and good company. Perfect for entertaining clients or getting together with likeminded friends and book groups.
Susan Fletcher was born in 1979 in Birmingham and has spoken at several Gliterary Lunches. She is the author of the bestselling Eve Green (winner of the Costa First Novel Award), Oystercatchers and Corrag (reissued as Witch Light) – and most recently, the much-lauded Let Me Tell You About A Man I Knew.
It is beautiful and mesmerising; like entering a dream. I was spellbound and couldn’t do anything else but keep reading. Jill Dawson
June 1914 and Clara Waterfield is summoned to a large stone house in Gloucestershire. Her task: to fill a greenhouse with exotic plants from Kew Gardens, to create a private paradise for the owner of Shadowbrook. Yet, on arrival, Clara hears rumours: something is wrong with this quiet, wisteria-covered house. Its rooms are shuttered, or empty. The owner is mostly absent; the housekeeper seems afraid. And soon, Clara understands her fear: nothing is quite what it seems.
Hannah Beckerman studied English at King’s College, London and for a Master’s degree at Queen Mary and Westfield. She spent twelve years working as a television producer and Commissioning Editor for the BBC, Channel 4 and the Discovery Channel USA.
Hannah is now a full-time author, journalist and broadcaster. She is a book critic and features writer for The Observer, The Guardian, The Sunday Express and the FT Weekend Magazine, and is a regular guest on the Sara Cox show on BBC Radio 2 discussing the latest book releases. She chairs events at literary festivals throughout the UK and has been a judge for numerous book prizes including the Costa Book Awards.
Hannah lives in London with her husband and daughter
A heart-breaking story, beautifully unwound and tenderly told. This book made me cry on public transport and I didn’t even care, that’s how good it is. Erin Kelly
Audrey’s family has fallen apart. Her two grown-up daughters, Jess and Lily, are estranged, and her two teenage granddaughters have never been allowed to meet. A secret that echoes back thirty years has splintered the family in two, but is also the one thing keeping them connected. As tensions reach breaking point, the irrevocable choice that one of them made all those years ago is about to surface. After years of secrets and silence, how can one broken family find their way back to each other?
