Askival

My first novel, A House Called Askival, was published by Freight Books, in June 2014.  Set in north India and spanning 70 years of recent history through the lives of one family, it is ultimately the story of a rebel daughter and her father who need reconciliation before he dies.

‘A gripping storyline.’ Church Times  Read the full review here.

“What the best historical fiction should be: the individual story from the heart of great events. Excellent.” Jonathan Falla, author of The Craft of Fiction 

“Askival will break your heart.” Cynthia Rogerson, author of I Love You, Goodbye
