Description

"A wise and spirited account of one woman's life" - Salley Vickers

Dogberry & Finch Books is absolutely thrilled to be hosting the official book launch of Song out of Darkness, the autobiography of author and poet Karen Eugenia Boreham.

Karen writes novels and poetry under the pen names of Karen Hayes and Karen Nelson, which have been published by Simon & Schuster, Black Swan, and other major publishers. Some of her novels have been translated into several languages, as well as being made into audio books. A former creative writing tutor at Exeter University and at Arvon Foundation creative writing centres, Karen still leads novel-writing workshops in Cornwall.

"In an age of increasing international insecurity, the concept of home becomes of still greater importance, as does our relationship with other races and cultures. This account of an American-born woman of Ukrainian extraction, married for 50 years to a Devon farmer, offers a small but entrancing vision of what unlikely meetings of culture, blood and tradition can produce.

This wise and spirited account of one woman’s life suggests how old traditions, transplanted, can become renewed and how brave life choices can generate creative outcomes. I read Karen’s story with the kind of quiet pleasure that only the truly authentic can deliver.”
– Salley Vickers
