The-Bone-Weavers-OrchardOut today from Journalstone, The Bone Weaver’s Orchard by Sarah Read

Sarah Read’s debut novel, The Bone Weaver’s Orchard releases today, 1 February, from Journalstone. Set in the Old Cross School for boys, no-one believes that anything sinister is happening when Charley Winslow’s friends vanish overnight. Indeed, they tell him it’s just a tall tale even when he sees a ragged, grey figure stalking the halls in the dark. This novel has been eagerly awaited and has received tremendous early reviews. Sarah Read’s short stories have already graced some of the best venues for dark fiction out there, and a debut collection will be coming later in 2019. You can pick up your copy of The Bone Weaver’s Orchard right now, here.
