A Room of One's Own is proud to welcome Kate Southwood, author of the novel Evensong!
A woman’s life is full of stories—some told and some untold. The life of Margaret Maguire, heroine of Kate Southwood’s new novel, Evensong, is also full of secrets. We meet Margaret as a grandmother in her final days, negotiating even on her deathbed the bitter divide between her grown daughters, Lee and Joanne. She herself has been a daughter, a sister, a sweetheart, a wife, a widow—and the identities blur and overlap to form an intensely moving portrait.
