About the Author

Jane Borodale studied site-specific sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art. She was recently Leverhulme writer-in-residence at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum in Sussex. Her first novel, The Book of Fires, was shortlisted for the Orange New Writers Prize, and she lives in the West Country with her husband and two children.


`This is a story about dreams, about the fragility of human achievement and the restorative - and destructive - powers of nature ... Surprising and intensely moving.' Maria McCann, author of The Wilding

`Pitch-perfect...Time flew as I was transported back to the mid-sixteenth century...Borodale exhibits a breathtaking knowledge of all things rural and horticultural.' Dove Grey Reader

`A beautiful book which goes to the heart of a gentle, driven man bringing his dream to life. The malign force he faces is chilling. The detail is touched in with great and subtle skill. ' James Long, author of Ferney and The Lives She Left Behind

Praise for Jane Borodale's first novel, THE BOOK OF FIRES:

'Jane Borodale displays a deft touch in this very pleasing story' MAUREEN WALLER, Daily Telegraph

`Borodale's refreshingly original approach and engaging style makes 'The Book of Fires' a welcome addition to the historical fiction genre'
Yorkshire Evening Post
