Chiddingstone Castle Literary Festival: Kate Mosse

A literary exclusive for Chiddingstone Castle sees the launch of The Burning Chambers, the new historical novel from Kate Mosse; bestselling author of Labyrinth and co-founder of the Women’s Prize for Fiction. The Burning Chambers is Kate’s first novel since The Taxidermist’s Daughter in 2014. Set in sixteenth-century Languedoc, this is a gripping story of love and betrayal, mysteries and secrets; of war and adventure, conspiracies and divided loyalties, covering three centuries and travelling the world from Carcassonne to Southern Africa. A Romeo & Juliet story of two families – one Catholic and one Protestant – of loss, inheritance, a priceless relic, a story of displacement, war and faith.
