Emma Henderson - The Valentine House

Due to unforeseen circumstances this event has been CANCELLED. Apologies for any inconvenience.

About 'The Valentine House':

Emma Henderson's second novel, The Valentine House, has its roots in a remote valley in the French Alps, where Henderson herself lived for six years. 

Set in 1914, the book follows the story of a young French girl and an English family who disturb her Alpine village and with it, her life. This finely wrought, superbly evocative and intriguing novel connects love and land, language and identity in a tale of two cultures and one family’s lasting impact on a woman and a place. 

Reviews of The Valentine House:

“A beautifully written, tender book.”Antonia Senior, The Times

“Mesmerising.” “I was totally seduced.” - Fanny Blake, Woman & Home

About the event:

Emma Henderson joins us to discuss her Alpine novel and the inspiration for this intriguing tale.
