Amanda Brooke, recommended on "Richard and Judy's Book Club, is coming to Tameside Central Library on Tuesday 26 January 6-7pm to talk about her new novel "The Child’s Secret".
Amanda Brooke is a single mum in her forties who lives in Liverpool with her teenage daughter Jessica. It was only when her young son was diagnosed with cancer that Amanda began to develop her writing, recording her family’s journey in a journal and through poetry. When Nathan died in 2006 at just three years old, Amanda was determined that his legacy would be one of inspiration not devastation. Her debut novel Yesterday’s Sun is inspired by her experiences of motherhood and her understanding of how much a mother would be willing to sacrifice for the life of her child.
Yesterday’s Sun, was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick and her books have been praised for their emotional sensitivity.
She will also be signing books, which will be available to buy on the night. Admission is free. To book a place, call 0161 342 2031 or visit http://tameside-amandabrooke.eventbrite.co.uk
