Join us for an evening with Joanna Cannon, as she talks about her bestselling novel, The Trouble with Goats and Sheep.
It’s Monday, the blistering summer of 1976 continues, and Mrs Creasy from Number 8 has gone missing. The neighbours seem keen to blame her disappearance on the heat, but 10-year-old Grace and her best friend Tilly aren’t convinced. Inspired by the local vicar, the girls decide to investigate.
But instead of finding their missing neighbour, the girls uncover a series of small mysteries behind the avenue’s closed doors. As they try to make sense of what they’ve seen and heard, a wider history of deception and long-buried secrets begins to emerge.
What the girls don’t know is that nine years ago a baby also went missing from the avenue; nor do they realise that the lies used to conceal the truth of that fateful day are the same ones Mrs Creasy was beginning to peel back – just before she disappeared.
