Bronwen will be talking about her new novel, 'Here Casts No Shadow,' at the Prnted Matter Bookshop on the 8th May at 6pm, and at the Rye Bookshop, Rye, East Sussex, on the 11th May, also from 6pm. She will talk about the inspiration for the book and her reasons for writing it.
I found myself liking this book quite a bit more than I thought I would. It's mostly because I don't often read about refugee stories that aren't nonfiction. I definitely enjoyed the characters, they felt realistic and definitely made the story entertaining and interesting. It's definitely worth reading.
