Come and hear from one of the most exciting British debut authors to emerge this year, who also happens to be a Bath resident!
In her incredibly moving first novel “Testament”, Kim Sherwood depicts a granddaughter’s search for hidden family truths, and a journey through loss, memory and forgiveness. When Eva Butler’s grandfather, the renowned artist Joseph Silk, dies, a chance discovery brings her face to face with the testament he gave after surviving labour service and a death march between Serbia and Hungary during WWII. As Eva sets out in search for answers, she’s confronted with a past her grandfather would rather forget, but which has laid the foundation for her own life.
Bold in its scope, ‘Testament’ is also a gorgeously intimate depiction of the ties which bind people beyond words, and a haunting, essential book for a present of increasing political intolerance and isolation, about the history we must never forget.
Kim was the winner of the 2016 Bath Novel Award. Now that her long-awaited debut is out in the world, we can’t wait to introduce you to this captivating new voice.
