Sue Lawrence: Lady's Rock
Join Sue Lawrence as she chats to Jenny Brown about her new book Lady's Rock
We are thouroughly delighted to be welcoming winner of BBC’s MasterChef, leading food writer, journalist and bestselling author of historical fiction, Sue Lawrence , to the shop on Tuesday 26th March at 7pm to celebrate the launch of her grippingly atmospheric tale of revenge and romance, Lady's Rock .
Sue will be in conversation with Jenny Brown .
Highland Scotland was no place for a woman in the early 1500s. Life was turbulent, brutal, short. Chiefs waged war, while their sisters and daughters were traded as pawns in marriage. Catherine Campbell was one such young bride, betrothed to Lachlan Maclean and despatched from her fine home to join him on the Isle of Mull, to bear his sons and heirs. But Lachlan proved to be nothing like the man of Catherine’s dreams, and she was forced to resign herself to enduring life with him for the sake of duty ... Until the day when he threatened to take away the one thing she couldn’t sacrifice: her daughter. Casting a fascinating light on the ruthless clan system, this compelling drama by one of Scotland’s best-loved novelists explores love, ambition, betrayal and revenge and highlights the precarious position of 16th-century women.
Sue Lawrence is the author of gripping historical thrillers that cast fascinating light on the perils and injustice that characterised women’s lives in Scotland in centuries past – whether they were penniless or wealthy. She is also one of the UK’s leading cookery writers and broadcasters. Trained as a journalist, she won BBC’s MasterChef and became a food writer, Cookery Editor of the Sunday Times and a contributor to leading magazines, and she appears frequently on the BBC. Born in Dundee, she lives in Edinburgh.
