One Moment - Linda Green

Fri 6th March

Best-selling author Linda Green was here,  with her latest novel One Moment. Featured on Radio 2's Book Club, it is the heart-breaking story of Finn and Kaz, whose lives are about to change forever. By turns sad and uplifting, it is a story that will move you and stay with you.

The Island Child

Thursday 27th Feb

Molly Aitken was here to launch her debut novel The Island Child .  It tells two stories: of the girl Oona, who grew up on the isle of Inis, watching storms and learning secrets, and of the adult Oona who left - desperate to find a second chance.  Rich, haunting and rooted in Irish folklore, The Island Child  is a spellbinding debut about identity and motherhood and the healing power of stories.
