Event description

About the book:

Thea lives under a mountain – one that’s ready to blow.

A vet at a mid-sized rural practice, she has been called back during maternity leave and is coping – just – with the juggle of meetings, mealtimes, farm visits, her boss’s search for legal loopholes and the constant care of her much-loved children, Eli and Lucy.

But something is shifting in Thea – something is burning. Or is it that she is becoming aware, for the first time, of the bright, hot core at her centre?

Then comes an urgent call.

Ingeniously layered,Β AshΒ is a story about reckoning with one’s rage and finding marvels in the midst of chaos.

'I have not felt this seen by a book, ever.Β AshΒ worked through me like a drug: I will be going back again and again. The craft is exquisite, the comedy deeply satiating. What Louise Wallace has achieved inΒ AshΒ is a monumental call to all the women who have been called good girls and bitches with the same breath.Β AshΒ simmers and smokes with honesty. It makes sparks fly.' β€”Claire Mabey
