Historical Intrigue grips Queen’s Park

Elizabeth Freemantle reading and signing Sisters of Treason

We’re delighted to announce the return of local author and maestro of courtly conspiracy Elizabeth Freemantle to the bookshop, where she’ll be reading from her latest novel, Sisters of Treason. A sequel to her gripping first novel Queen’s Gambit, Sisters of Treason follows the plots, passions, romances and betrayals of the royal court during precarious and turbulent reign of Mary Tudor. An enticing and moving novel, the perfect read for fans of Hilary Mantel or Phillipa Gregory.

Join us in the shop for Elizabeth’s reading and signing on Thursday 3rd July from 6.30pm – refreshments will be provided and entry is, as always, free. Please RSVP by calling us on 020 7625 1008 or emailing us at the usual address.
