The Daughter’s Promise is Launched!
I treated myself to a little holiday in the UK to celebrate this exciting event and to meet my publisher and revisit the lovely streets of Oxford where the first and last chapter of the book are set. My son and I had a fabulous time exploring London too — launching the trip by doing a ‘liquid histories’ walking tour, where we were taken to the most charming, quirky, hidden and unbelievably fabulous little pubs around the City of London and near Blackfriars. We learned about illegal breweries of times past, cock fighting galleries at the tiny establishment still called The Cockpit, and all sorts of sordid and interesting history pertaining to the places and the pints we sampled at each pub, even spending time in a Dominican friary from the thirteenth century (minus the friars, who kindly left a legacy of tasty beer).
The most exciting part of the trip though, was meeting up and lunching in London with my lovely editor Emily Gowers and my publicist (and author extraordinaire) Noelle Holten, and bagging the excellent selfie you see at the top of this post!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading “The Daughter’s Promise”. There were so many ‘hooks’ to keep me turning the pages, to know more and to discover the answers to the questions I had!
I would highly recommend reading your book to anyone – especially if they like intrigue and mystery as I do.
Well done, a great novel written. Your research was obvious, details of which were educational for me.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story.
