Wed 30 March 2016, 18:30 – 19:30 BST
Meet Stuart David Robertson, a local writer who's first novel has become the most talked about book of 2016!
For anyone who wonders what it would be like to have one last chance to say goodbye, S.D. Robertson’s evocative debut novel is the tear-jerker of the year. A heart-breaking story that explores the unique bond between father and daughter, Time to Say Goodbye will pull on every heart-string and is a must-read for fans of JoJo Moyes and Nicholas Sparks.
Will and his six year old daughter Ella have had to overcome a lot during her short life following the death of Will’s beloved wife during childbirth. So, when Will is killed on his way to pick Ella up from school, the vision of his adored little girl waiting for her daddy to turn up at the end of the day is enough to stop Will’s spirit passing over.
Granted a grace period by the supernatural powers that be, Will chooses to stay close to his daughter rather than passing to the other side as his parents try to help her pick up the pieces of her shattered life. But once he knows Ella can see him, it makes the decision to stay or to say goodbye an impossible one to make. Which is best for him? But, most importantly, what is best for his cherished daughter? With time running out, Will needs to make a decision….
Stuart will be reading from his novel and talking about how he got his first book published. You can also buy a signed copy of the book afterwards.
