Author, poet, singer with The March Violets and cabaret chanteuse, Rosie Garland is an eclectic performer. And she's coming to the bookshop with her latest book!
Vixen is an extraordinary tale of superstition and devotion in the time of the Black Death and will bewitch both new readers and fans of Rosie's much-loved debut, The Palace of Curiosities.
Devon, 1349. In Brauntone, Father Thomas arrives as the new priest. Determined to impress his congregation, he quells fears of the coming pestilence with promises of protection.
For Anne, the priest's housekeeper, his home is a place without love or kindness. So when a strange, mute Maid is washed up in the marshes, and taken in, Anne is grateful for the company. Their friendship is to give Anne the chance of a happiness she thought she'd never know.
But soon the plague strikes Brauntone, spreading panic. And as the villagers' fear turns to anger, Thomas must sacrifice anything to restore their faith in him.
