Event description

Description

David Matthews in partnership with The Quaker Centre Bookshop invites you and your friends to a launch event and signing for his new novel, 'That They Might Lovely Be'.

No-one thought Bertie Simmonds could speak. So, when he is heard singing an Easter hymn, this is not so much the miracle some think as a bolt drawn back, releasing long-repressed emotions with potentially devastating consequences... A decade later, Bertie marries Anstace, a woman old enough to be his mother, and another layer of mystery starts to peel away. Beginning in a village in Kent and set between the two World Wars, That They Might Lovely Be stretches from the hell of Flanders, to the liberating beauty of the Breton coast, recounting a love affair which embraces the living and the dead.

"David Matthews has managed the trickiest of doubles - a literary page-turner with a heart and a brain." - Clare Chambers, author of In a Good Light, The Editor's Wife, and Back Trouble.
