Stacey Halls and Susan Stokes Chapman

Two outstanding historical fiction writers, Stacey Halls and Susan Stokes-Chapman make a welcome a return to the festival, to discuss their alluring, immersive new novels with writer-in-residence Cathy Rentzenbrink.

There’s something mysterious about the village of Penhelyg. Will unlocking its truth bring light or darkness? Susan Stokes-Chapman, bestselling author of Pandora conjures the beauty and darkness of 18th-century Wales with her haunting new novel, The Shadow Key.

Set against Charles Dicken’s home for fallen women and inspired by real figures from history, The Household is the most ambitious and captivating novel yet from Stacey Halls, bestselling author of The Familiars, The Foundling and Mrs England.
