Join us for an evening with internationally renowned award-winning novelist Claire Fuller; where she will be discussing her latest book ‘Bitter Orange’.
‘A compulsive page-turner. Fuller creates an atmosphere of simmering menace with all the assurance of a latter-day Daphne du Maurier’ The Times
Frances Jellico is dying. A man who calls himself the vicar visits, hoping to extract a deathbed confession. He wants to know what really happened that fateful summer of 1969, when Frances – tasked with surveying a dilapidated country house – first set eyes on the glamorous bohemian couple, Cara and Peter. She recalls the relationship they forged through sweltering days, lavish dinners and elaborate lies, and the Judas hole through which she would spy on the couple.
Were the signs there right from the beginning?
Or was it impossible to avoid the crime that split their lives open like rotten fruit?
There will also be a chance to discuss the book at ‘Max’s Walking Book Club’ on Sunday 30th June at 11.30am. Join other book lovers for a walk in the fields of Saffron Walden to discuss the book. No ticket needed and no need to reserve a place – friends, dogs and children all welcome. We’ll be setting off from the shop at 11.30 am for about an hour’s walk.
