Boutique Book Club with Anna Bailey

Location

Chorleywood Bookshop, 7 New Parade, Chorleywood, WD3 5NJ

Event description

Our incredibly popular 'Boutique Book Club’, in partnership with Penguin Random House, continues with the incredibly talented Anna Bailey who'll be joining us to talk about her novel Tall Bones.

Does this place look safe to you?

When 17-year-old Abigail goes missing, her best friend Emma, driven by the guilt of leaving her alone at the Tall Bones party that night, sets out to find the truth about what happened. As the details unfold, fear and rage surface. Nobody is left unscathed. The festering secrets and longstanding resentment of Abigail’s family and the whole community of Whispering Ridge, Colorado, begin to surface with devastating consequences.

Soon to emerge is Abi’s older brother Noah’s unworldly yet potentially dangerous love for the handsome Rat, a Romanian immigrant who recently entered town, the provenance of her 12-year-old brother Jude’s fragility – he walks with a stick because his father threw him down the stairs while their mother Dolly turned away. How culpable is Dolly, who married the bible-bashing Samuel on a whim, and now has a frozen heart and watches her children unravel?

And overshadowing them all is an overpowering pastor who incites hatred, filling his congregation with tales of fire and brimstone.
