Edinburgh April 2023 Event - Both Featured Books
Hotel 21 by Senta Rich & The Silence Project by Carole Hailey
Senta Rich began her career as an advertising copywriter and then moved into writing for film and TV. Hotel 21 is her first novel and has been optioned by MGM as a TV series in a major deal. In this warm-hearted tale, we meet Noelle, a model employee. Or so she’d have you think. The trouble is that she can’t help taking a little ‘souvenir’ as she cleans the hotels where she works. Before anyone catches up with her, she moves on. But when she meets her new colleagues at her 21st hotel, she starts to wonder what it would be like to have real friends, people to stick around for....
'Hotel 21 is a sharp, funny, poignant and completely heart-warming story about female friendship and kick-ass women. I truly loved it!’ Ruth Hogan
For many years Carole Hailey was a lawyer specialising in IT, and founded the UK’s first all-female law firm in the area. She turned to fiction in her later 40s after signing up to a creative writing course taught by Bernardine Evaristo. Her debut novel, The Silence Project is already capturing media interest so she won't be unknown for long! Her engrossing novel follows Emilia Morris who decides to publish her own account of her mother's life - a mother who took a vow of silence and created a Community of followers who then burned themselves to death. Was she a monster or a martyr?
'Engrossing and original, politicial and unpredictable' Bernardine Evaristo
