The Silence Factory with Bridget Collins, a Mr B’s Event

22 May @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Silence Factory with Bridget Collins

Mr B‘s are excited to welcome author Bridget Collins to Mr B’s, to discuss her latest novel, The Silence Factory, a spellbinding historical novel about a powerful family, the magical and dangerous silk their fortune is built upon, and the exploitative history they are desperately trying to hide.

Bridget is the No. 1 bestselling author of The Binding, and The Betrayals. We can’t wait to welcome Bridget to Bath, and we hope you’ll join us!

About the book:

A world without the clattering of carriages through cobbled streets, the distant cries of drunken brawls, the relentless ticking of the clock. Then he meets a fascinating, mysterious gentleman who sells just that. Precious silk that can drown out the clamour of the world – and everything Henry is so desperate to escape.

Summoned to Sir Edward’s secluded factory to try to cure his young daughter’s deafness, Henry is soon drawn deeper and deeper into the origins of this otherworldly gift: a gift that has travelled from ancient Mediterranean glades to English libraries. Ignoring repeated warnings from the girl’s secretive governess, he allows himself to fall under the spell of Sir Edward and his silk… but when he learns its true cost, will it be too late to turn back?
