Event description

We're thrilled to welcome the international No. 1 Bestselling author, Kate Mosse CBE who will be talking about her new historical adventure novel,The Map of Bones: an epic story of adventure and hardship, dispossession and injustice. The sequel to The Ghost Ship–this epic adventure story is the fourth and final novel of The Joubert Family Chronicles series bringing southern Africa in the 17th and 19th centuries to life.

Olifantshoek, South Africa, 1688. When the vicious Cape wind blows from the south-east, they say the voices of the unquiet dead can be heard whispering through this deserted valley. Suzanne Joubert is here to walk in the footsteps of her cousin, Louise Reydon-Joubert, pirate and commander of the Ghost Ship, who disappeared more than sixty years ago. Suzanne has come to find her—to lay the stories to rest. But all is not as it seems . . .

Franschhoek, South Africa, 1862. One hundred and eighty years later, another member of the Joubert family, Isabelle Lepard, has journeyed to the small frontier town once known as Oliftantshoek in search of the long-lost women of her family. But the tragedies and crimes of the past are far from over, and Isabelle must race against time to not only discover the truth but escape with her life . . .
