The Silence Of Water with Sharron Booth

Past Event


Join Sharron Booth as she discusses her historical fiction novel, The Silence of Water.

It’s the turn of the century when Fan’s mother, Agnes, announces the family is moving to Western Australia to take care of Agnes’s father – a man they’ve never spoken of before now. Fan finds herself a stranger in a new town living in a home whose currents and tensions she cannot read or understand.
