Description

Bridget Collins returns to Derby with another fascinating read: The Silence Factory. Bridget joined us in 2019 for her breakout novel, The Binding.

Henry dreams of silence.

A world without the clattering of carriages through cobbled streets, the distant cries of drunken brawls, the relentless ticking of the clock.

Then he meets a fascinating, mysterious gentleman who sells just that. Precious silk that can drown out the clamour of the world – and everything Henry is so desperate to escape.

Summoned to Sir Edward’s secluded factory to try to cure his young daughter’s deafness, Henry is soon drawn deeper and deeper into the mysterious origins of this otherworldly gift: a gift that has travelled from ancient Mediterranean glades to English libraries.

Ignoring repeated warnings, he allows himself to fall under the spell of Sir Edward and his silk... but when he learns its true cost, will it be too late to turn back?

Bridget will be in conversation with one of our most popular interviewers, novelist and former Festival Trustee, Sarah Ward

Kindly sponsored by Darwin Escapes.
