Due to unforeseen circumstances, the following event has been postponed. We will share further information once rescheduled. In the meantime, why not buy a copy of The Caledonians: Mr Petrie’s Apprentice from Wordery (https://bit.ly/3aB60rM), or another online book retailer?
Join us at the Royal Hotel in Jedburgh to meet local author Yvonne Ridley and discover The Caledonians trilogy.
An experienced former Fleet Street journalist, Yvonne’s
previous best seller, In The Hands of the Taliban, recounted her real
life kidnap and detention by The Taliban in Afghanistan.
In Mr Petrie’s Apprentice, her first novel, Yvonne
combines her investigative skills with a rich imagination, weaving historical
facts from our rich Scottish history into a modern fantasy, time travelling
adventure. What connects Mr Petrie, a Scottish history master with the gift of
eternal life, with Duncan Dewar, the schoolboy grandson of a clockmaker? What
is the Council of Anam Cara? Can they thwart the evil forces threatening
society as we know it?
While written primarily for young adults, Mr Petrie’s
Apprentice is a rip-roaring adventure for adult readers too.
Join us from 6 – 8pm on Wednesday 18 March for this free event!
