Michelle Paver Book Launch in Ely
April 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
In Edwardian Suffolk, a manor house stands alone in a lost corner of the Fens: a glinting wilderness of water whose whispering reeds guard ancient secrets. Maud is a lonely child growing up without a mother, ruled by her repressive father. When he finds a painted medieval devil in a graveyard, unhallowed forces are awakened. Maud’s battle has begun. She must survive a world haunted by witchcraft, the age-old legends of her beloved fen – and the even more nightmarish demons of her father’s past.
Spanning five centuries, ‘Wakenhyrst’ is a dark thriller about murderous obsession and one girl’s longing to fly free. We are delighted to launch Michelle’s masterwork of modern gothic, and we hope you can join us to celebrate.
