Event description

Join local author Vanessa McCausland in conversation with Belinda Alexandra as they discuss her newest contemporary fiction, Dreaming in French.

A remote French island. A crumbling villa. A reclusive film star. And an inheritance she never expected. 

'Dreaming In French was everything I’d hoped for. Set on the small island of Île de Re, Vanessa combines the romantic ambiance of coastal France with hard-hitting themes of emotional abuse and loss, all set against a heartbreaking historical mystery. I have loved all of Vanessa’s books, but this is the best one yet.' Ali Lowe, author of The Running Club.

'The book I've always dreamed of finding - magical prose, a glorious setting and a gripping storyline. Drift away to a gorgeous French island in the hands of an expert storyteller. McCausland has crafted a stunning novel - my only wish was that it never had to end!' Natasha Lester, author of The Three Lives of Alix St Pierre.

Books will be available for purchase and signing on the night.
