Local Author Sheena Dearness Book Launch ‘Shadows’ & Signing

23 June 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Have you read ‘A Red Haze’ – the first of my Dorset-based trilogy starting in the 1946 post-war period? In the book, fourteen and a half year old Meg Taylor faces circumstances far beyond her control that forces her into an environment where her future appears to be mapped out for her. Her new life is not without dangers as the crimes of others impinge on her life.

In ‘Shadows’ Meg returns to her birthplace near Sturminster Newton to face the unpleasantness of her past. There, a dark shadow threatens the loss of her daughter Issy. On returning to Wool, shadows of past criminal activities places the family in grave danger.

Author’s note: ‘ Meg believed women of that era were locked into societal traditions that demanded a woman’s role was to marry and have children while men were in the workplace. Her hurt, anger and frustrations will touch you but so will Meg’s stoicism and determination. ‘Me Too’ and the empowerment of women would gain from reading the two books.’

Both books will be available at my book launch of ‘Shadows’ in the Grosvenor Arms, High Street, Shaftesbury SP7 8JA on Thursday 23rd June at 10am.

Note: There is no charge but 10% of sales of the books on the day will go to ukraine-funds@fpc.org.pl who supply books to Ukrainian refugee children and funds to Ukrainian publishers to print books for the exiled Ukrainians in other countries.
