The Bloomsbury will contact you directly to reissue your tickets to the new date or to issue refund if you are unable to make the rearranged date.
To celebrate the UK publication of her major new historical novel, The City of Tears, join international No 1 bestselling novelist & playwright Kate Mosse & friends including Jojo Moyes, Sandi Toksvig and other special guests for a spell-binding evening celebrating women’s voices, stories about love and betrayal, family and intrigue, history and landscape, war and loss, courage, revenge and a centuries long feud.
The keenly awaited follow-up to her critically acclaimed Sunday Times number one bestselling The Burning Chambers, The City of Tears is the second heart breaking novel in Kate’s historical adventure series. Set in Languedoc, Paris and Amsterdam, the Joubert family will find themselves in Paris on the Eve of the caught most notorious massacre of the Wars of Religion. On the night of 24 August 1572, many thousands will be murdered, displaced and lost. One of those who goes missing will be a child...
