Pageturners November Read

When the Black Death enters England through the port of Melcombe in Dorsetshire in June 1348, no one knows what manner of sickness it is or how it spreads and kills so quickly. The Church cites God as the cause, and religious fear grips the people as they come to believe that the plague is a punishment for wickedness.

But who can explain the deaths of innocent newborns? Is God so angered by His creations that He seeks to destroy all mankind? There is one who rejects this idea: Lady Anne of Develish. Anne gathers her serfs within the gates of Develish and refuses entry to outsiders, even to her husband. What happens to people of Develish?

Pageturners will be talking about The Last Hours by international bestselling author Minette Walters on Wednesday 8th November from 5.30pm – 7pm. See you there!
