A Message from the Other Side: an evening with Moira Forsyth

September 27, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

A Message from the Other Side

Don’t miss this reading with Moira Forsyth, who’ll be reading from and talking about her fifth novel, A Message from the Other Side. It’s a book about love and marriage, but beyond this it explores the damage we can do to each other even in the most ordinary of families. Moira’s writing has been been widely acclaimed, and we can’t wait to welcome her to the bookshop – we do hope you can join us!

About the book

When Catherine moves several hundred miles away from her sister, Helen says, ‘Phone calls aren’t enough’, but they make it easier to edit the truth. Helen can dismiss Gilbert and his enchanted Factory as ‘weird’ when she’s never met him, and Catherine thinks Helen foolish for loving the unreliable and dangerous Joe. Neither sees the perils concealed in what they have not told each other, or guesses at the sinister connection between their separate lives.
