Kate Mosse – The Burning Chambers
September 29, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm£10.00
Kate Mosse is an international bestselling novelist, most well known for her Languedoc trilogy: Labyrinth, Sepulchre and Citadel. Labyrinth sold more copies than any other book in the UK in 2006 and her legion of worldwide fans will be delighted to hear that she has returned to her beloved hilltop town of Carcassonne for her new novel, The Burning Chambers.
The book is the first in a new series of historical novels spanning 300 years of Huguenot history and
is set in 16th-century Languedoc. Billed as a gripping story of war and adventure, conspiracies and divided loyalties, it has a typically fiery young heroine in 19-year-old Minou Joubert.
“Mosse’s fans will relish this tale of secrets, love and treachery,” according to The Times, while Scotland on Sunday says:“Mosse’s narrative lyricism, beautifully drawn female characters and deft journey from the past to the present day are a cut above.”
Mosse, who was made an OBE in 2013 for services to literature, is also a playwright and non-fiction writer. She is deputy chair of the National Theatre, on the executive committee of Women of the World and the founder director of the Women’s Prize for Fiction.
