Stef Penney: The Beasts of Paris - Part of The Spring Collection: Derby Book Festival

Her latest, The Beasts of Paris, is a dazzling historical epic of love and survival in war-torn Paris. Anne is a former patient from a women’s asylum trying to carve out a new life for herself in a world that doesn’t understand her. Newcomer Lawrence is desperate to develop his talent as a photographer and escape the restrictions of his puritanical upbringing. Ellis, an army surgeon, has lived through the trauma of one civil war and will do anything to avoid another bloodbath.
