Anne first conceived the possibility of writing a novel when she was a child. Her copy of L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables became a treasured friend. And so, many years later, while driving down a winding B road in East Sussex, Anne’s imagination was sparked by a signpost which read The Enchanted Forest. Once home in Vancouver, the remembrance of this moment and the forest attached to her childhood school, Crofton House, brought about Lavender Village. Then came the sequel, The Mists of Afar, which takes place in the Hebrides, and a third, A Castle in the Sky, that features Fellsdown Castle in Northumberland.All three creations came in a rush of inspiration and joy.
Those who have read Anne’s previous novels will find some familiar characters while others are refreshingly new. Deep in the Fellsdownian Hills of Yorkshire, the reader will be introduced to generational intrigue that has plagued Fellsdown Castle: it is always the ladies of the manor who are targeted. But why? While the Bleak Realm plays its part, there is love and beauty in equal measure. If you love rich imagery with romance and mystery, Anne hopes that you will find A Castle in the Sky to be an enticing read!
Lavender Village and The Mists of Afar were nominated for the Governor General’s Literary Award in Canada. Anne hopes that A Castle in the Sky will be the charm!
