Bury Libraries invites you to Prestwich Library on Monday 20th June at 7pm, to meet the author of Tainted Love, Anna Chilvers.
‘Secrets and stones have settled in Hawden where everything stays as it is; the past is hidden, or rewritten. Lauren lives with her dad and Mr Lion after her mother left her when she was three months old. Her boyfriend Peter is struggling with his identity. When Meg and her son Richard arrive, both dangerously attractive, and Ali too, angry and on the run from drug dealers, old stories resurface, creating new tensions. After seventeen years Lauren’s mother comes back into her life and nothing is quite what it seems any more, but love, however tainted, can sometimes heal.’
TAINTED LOVE is a modern gothic tale of how old stories can unravel people’s lives.
One reviewer said:
“I can’t remember the last time I read something so unexpected and beautiful, but it’s extremely difficult to describe it without giving away part of what makes it so special. It’s thoughtful, thrilling, full of vivid characters, and most of all it is surprising, yet familiar and totally believable in a very recognisable setting. If you loved “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern, “A Kind of Intimacy” by Jenn Ashworth or “Hungry, the Stars and Everything” by Emma Jane Unsworth – and if you enjoy having your preconceptions challenged – you really must read this.”
You can borrow Anna’s novel now from Bury Libraries and signed copies of the novel will also be available to buy at the event.
Tickets cost £3 and include refreshments. You can drop into Prestwich Library or telephone 0161 253 7214 for tickets, or contact your local library.
More details can be found on our website.
We hope to see you there.
