Kim Sherwood: Testament
  • Mostly Books
    36 Stert Street
    Abingdon
    OX14 3JP
Come along to Mostly Books on Tuesday 18th June to hear Kim Sherwood talk about her critically acclaimed first novel, Testament. The event will be taking place during Independent Bookshop Week (IBW).

Kim Sherwood will be at Mostly Books talking about her book, Testament, which will be published in paperback on 13th June. 

Of everyone in her complicated family, Eva was always closest to her grandfather. She is making a film about his life. She is with him when he dies.

It is only when she finds the letter from the Jewish Museum in Berlin, hidden in his painting studio, that she realises how many secrets he kept. As she uncovers everything he endured in the Holocaust - and what it took to learn to live again - Eva is confronted by the lies that haunt her family, and a truth that changes her own identity.

Kim Sherwood's hope-filled first novel is a powerful portrait of survival echoing through the generations; a testament of love, legacy, and all the important questions we leave unasked.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.  Tickets are £5, including a drink and £1 redeemable against a copy of Testament on the night.  Tickets are available from Mostly Books and on EventBrite.
