Jane Green is the author of fifteen bestselling novels which are mature stories of real women dealing with obstacles that forever change our lives, from the blissful to the tragic, and all told with her trademark wit, wisdom, and compassion. Her newest is no exception. Tempting Fate is her riveting, heartrending, and ultimately hopeful new novel, praised by Kirkus as “a Scarlet Letter for the 21st Century.”
Jane wrote Family Pictures while sitting by the fireplace at the Bee & Thistle Inn. “I booked myself into the Bee & Thistle for a self-imposed writing retreat,” Green says. “They were actually closed, but the owners opened it up for me, and I spent every day sitting in a large wing chair by the fire writing. It was peaceful, beautiful, and the perfect environment to allow me to lose myself in my characters for five days. I actually managed to finish my book in that wing chair, and hugely look forward to doing it again soon.”
Don't miss this wonderful event on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at the Bee and Thistle Inn, and experience the special place where Jane found her inspiration for Family Pictures.
