An Evening With Laura Purcell

Tuesday 24th March 18:00 at Harrogate

Laura Purcell, author of the bestselling novel, The Silent Companions, will be discussing her new paperback Bone China. After the interview Laura will be happy to answer questions from the audience, and at the end of the event she will be signing her wonderful books.

Forty years later, Hester Why arrives at Morvoren House to take up a position as nurse to the now partially paralysed and almost entirely mute Miss Pinecroft. Hester has fled to Cornwall to try and escape her past, but she soon discovers that her new home may be just as dangerous as her last...
