Description

Meet Preston born author Jenn Ashworth. Jenn will be talking about her novel Fell.

Fell is a novel about miracles – wanted and otherwise – magic, healing and the danger of hope. It’s also about a family who run a lodging house on the edge of Morecambe Bay in a little town called Grange-over-Sands. One day, a mysterious and charismatic lodger arrives, claiming that he can heal Netty – the landlady of the house – of her terminal cancer. The novel is narrated by a pair of regretful ghosts, woken into being by their daughter’s return to the now abandoned lodging house. So it’s partly a ghost story, partly an exploration of loss and illness and magic, and it’s partly about what happens when you do and don’t get exactly what you wished for.
