Sara Collins and Yvonne Battle-Felton have written two of the hottest historical fiction debuts of 2019.
Sara Collins’ novel The Confessions of Frannie Langton introduces a new gothic heroine. Frannie Langton is a former slave from a plantation in Jamaica, who is now on trial at the Old Bailey for the murder of her employers in Georgian London.
In Remembered, Northern Writers’ Awards winner Yvonne Battle-Felton explores slavery’s complex legacy through the eyes of Spring, an emancipated slave dying in hospital and looking back on her life.
These two unforgettable female narrators are each fighting to tell their own stories in their own words. Join Sara and Yvonne to find out how they brought them to life.
