Description

Join us for an evening with Rachel Malik, author of Miss Boston and Miss Hargreaves.
One day in 1940 Rene Hargreaves walks out on her family and the city to take a position as a Land Girl at the remote Starlight farm. There she will live with and help lonely farmer Elsie Boston. At first Elsie and Rene are unsure of one another - strangers from different worlds. But over time they each come to depend on the other. They become inseparable.Until the day a visitor from Rene's past arrives and their careful, secluded life is thrown into confusion. Suddenly, all they have built together is threatened. What will they do to protect themselves? And are they prepared for the consequences?
Described by The Sunday Times as 'a surprisingly touching account of hidden lives forced out of the shadows', this novel is not one to be missed.
Rachel will be interviewed by her editor to discuss her book, her experience of writing it and what prompted her to begin writing fiction. Rachel has always been a writer - of articles, essays, reviews and chapters, and Miss Boston and Miss Hargreaves is her first novel. Rachel is also one of the four writers in residence at Gladstone's Library in Hawarden, Wales.
