Jessie Burton was a struggling actress and reluctant PA when she embarked on her first novel The Miniaturist. It went on to become a runaway bestseller and to win the Specsavers' Book of the Year. Here she talks about her path to becoming a writer and introduces her eagerly awaited second novel, a captivating and brilliantly realised story of two young women: a Caribbean immigrant in 1960s London, and a bohemian woman in 1930s Spain and the powerful mystery that ties them together.
