Wednesday, 7 August 2019 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

History is once more brought to life in spectacular fashion with the latest novel from local author Kate Forsyth. Paralleling the turbulent times of revolutionary France and the secrecy of Imperial China, The Blue Rose is an evocative tale of endurance, love and triumph.

Fascinated by revolutionary France since reading The Scarlet Pimpernel as a child Kate has always wanted to write a novel set in this period. However, it wasn't until she stumbled across details of the real-life quest to bring red roses to Europe that the seeds of The Blue Rose began to grow.
