An Evening with…Kate Mosse

October 8 @ 7:30 PM

£12.00 – £30.00

Book-ish is thrilled to welcome the international bestselling author, Kate Mosse CBE, on 8th October 2024.

Kate will be talking about her new historical adventure novel, The Map of Bones: an epic story of adventure and hardship, dispossession and injustice. A sweeping story of love, adventure and adversity, The Map of Bones, is the stunning conclusion to The Joubert Family Chronices which brings southern Africa in the 17th and 19th centuries to life.

Olifantshoek, Southern Africa, 1688. When the violent Cape wind blows from the south-east, they say the voices of the unquiet dead can be heard whispering through the deserted valley. Suzanne Joubert, a Huguenot refugee from war-torn France, arrives in search of her cousin – the notorious she-captain and pirate commander Louise Reydon-Joubert – who landed at the Cape of Good Hope more than sixty years before, then disappeared without a trace . . .

Franschhoek, Southern Africa, 1862. Nearly one hundred and eighty years after Suzanne’s perilous journey, another intrepid woman of the Joubert family – Isabelle Lepard – has journeyed to the small frontier town once known as Oliftantshoek in search of her long-lost relations. Intent on putting the women of her family back into the history books, she quickly discovers that the tragedies and crimes of the past are far from over. Isabelle faces a race against time if she is not only going to discover the truth, but also escape with her life . . .

Painstakingly researched and beautifully told, The Map of Bones is the fourth – and final – novel of The Joubert Family Chronicles, following the bestselling The Burning Chambers, The City of Tears and The Ghost Ship.

‘Mosse is a master storyteller’ – Madeleine Miller, bestselling author of Circe

‘Historical fiction to devour’ – Anthony Horowitz, bestselling author of The Twist of the Knife, on The Burning Chambers

‘Meticulously researched and stunningly written’ – Santa Montefiore, bestselling author of Wait for Me, on The Ghost Ship
