An evening with Kate Sawyer

May 16, 2023 @ 18:30 21:00

Join us in the shop as we chat to Kate about her triumphant second novel, This Family which will be released on 11th May.

Splintered in a dozen different ways, Mary’s family must come together for her wedding day in the home that has been both battleground and sanctuary for them all. The place where so many things have fallen apart will now become the site of a long-awaited union. Could it also see the mending of broken sibling bonds and the healing of bruised hearts, or are some thing impossible to forgive? Even when it’s family?

With shades of Mrs Dalloway, This Family is set over the course of an English summer’s day but punctuated with memories from the past forty years of love and loss, hope and joy, heartbreak and grief. This is the story of a family told by a chorus of characters. It is an exploration of the small moments that bring us to where we are, the changes that are brought about by time, and what, despite everything, stays the same.

Intriguing, gripping, moving – this deserves to be HUGE.’ MARIAN KEYES
