Sylvia Broady signing in WHSmith Beverley
WHSmith Beverley Books, HU17 9AJ
Saturday 2nd November from 11am
Come and meet Sylvia Broady at WHSmith Beverley Books on Saturday 2nd November from 11am . She will be signing copies of her new book, The Lost Daughter.
It is war-time Britain and seduced by her brother-in-law, sixteen-year-old Frances becomes pregnant and is banished to a lonely farm. She gives birth to twins, a boy and a girl, whom her mother heartlessly wrenches from her. And when told her baby daughter has died, Frances is overcome with grief. After years of loneliness and yearning, Frances sets out full of determination to be reunited with her son, Michael, and tell him the truth of his birth.
Sylvia Broady was born in Hull and has lived in the area all her life, although she loves to travel the world. It wasn’t until she started to frequent her local library after World War II that her relationship with literature truly began, and her memories of the war influence her writing as does her home town. She has had a varied career in childcare, the NHS and the East Yorkshire Council Library Services, but is now a full-time writer.
