We are thrilled that Stacey Halls, author of three best selling books; The Familiars, The Foundling and Mrs England, is returning to Grassington to discuss the paperback publication of her newest book, Mrs England.
Mrs England is the third best selling book by Stacey Halls.
West Yorkshire, 1904. When newly graduated nurse Ruby May takes a position looking after the children of Charles and Lilian England, a wealthy couple from a powerful dynasty of mill owners, she hopes it will be the fresh start she needs.
But as she adapts to life at the isolated Hardcastle House, it becomes clear there's something not quite right about the beautiful, mysterious Mrs England. Distant and withdrawn, Lilian shows little interest in her children or charming husband, and is far from the 'angel of the house' Ruby was expecting. As the warm, vivacious Charles welcomes Ruby into the family, a series of strange events forces her to question everything she thought she knew.
Ostracised by the servants and feeling increasingly uneasy, Ruby must face her demons in order to prevent history from repeating itself. After all, there's no such thing as the perfect family - and she should know. Simmering with slow-burning menace, Mrs England is a portrait of an Edwardian marriage, weaving an enthralling story of men and women, power and control, courage, truth and the very darkest deception.
Set against the atmospheric West Yorkshire landscape, Stacey Halls' third novel proves her one of the most exciting and compelling new storytellers of our times.
In an interview with Linda Furniss from The Stripey Badger, Stacey Halls will discuss her book, her research and methods and her future books. Stacey Halls came to the Stripey Badger in February 2020 for a sell out event. Almost two years later this will prove to be another fantastic event.
All her books will be on sale during the event with time for Stacey to answer any of your questions as well as sign copies of books. There will be a bar available in the evening.
The event will be held at The Grassington Devonshire Institute in the Octagon Room.
Doors open at 6:30 with the event starting at 7pm.
Tickets are £5 and include £2 off the RRP of the books. Tickets can be bought in The Stripey Badger and online here
