Morning book lovers, tonight authors Thomas McKerley and Ingrid Schippers will be at the Oxfam Bookshop in Royal Exchange Square to talk about their new book Bloodlines: Touch Not the Cat.
When American homicide detective, Cathy Macpherson, reluctantly agrees to join her husband on a genealogy trip to Scotland, she does not expect to solve a mystery set in motion by her own ancestors. Switching back and forth between Victorian times and 2011, the story reveals what forced Alexander Stewart to emigrate to America in 1985 and what moved laird Gordon Macpherson to protect his Highland values. Women’s suffrage, racism and social division are at the heart of this gripping mystery. All bloodlines and events come together at a clan gathering in Scotland, where a family skeleton has a story to tell.
The authors will introduce the book, read an extract from it and take questions from the floor. You will also have the chance to buy a copy and have it signed by the authors.
Venue: Oxfam Bookshop, 5 Royal Exchange Square.
