Join bestselling author Anna Hope as she discusses her novels The Ballroom and Wake. Their settings bookend the Great War and offer an insight into an era that left no lives in Britain unchanged. A Richard and Judy Book Club choice in 2016, The Ballroom is set over the heatwave summer of 1911 at the end of the Edwardian era and is a tale of unlikely love and dangerous obsession of madness and sanity, and of who gets to decide which is which. On Remembrance Day 1920, a wartime secret connects three women’s lives: Hettie, whose brother won’t speak; Evelyn, who still grieves for her lost lover; Ada, who still believes her son will come home. Wake explores the mystery that binds them together.
