Join us for an evening of glitz and glamour as novelist Vanessa Beaumont discusses her debut novel The Other Side of Paradise, a tale of grief, love and scandal underpinned by the ruins of war. Vanessa will be interviewed by Jessica Fellowes, author of the excellent Mitford Murders series.


Duty, scandal, and a mother’s desperate attempt to protect her sons from a secret that will destroy them.

LONDON 1920 – Jean Buckman, a young and innocent American heiress, arrives in England to find a society decimated by war but resolutely clinging to the status quo. She marries Edward Warre, an engaging but complex man and the inheritor of a once great but now struggling estate.As the marriage falters, Jean spends her summers in the South of France where she embarks on a passionate affair that will have repercussions for the rest of her life.

Two sons arrive, the oldest, heir to the estate, is not the true bloodline. But Edward needs Jean’s money to survive, and she needs her husband’s silence…

The Other Side of Paradise is the heart-breaking story of a family ripped apart by the shackles of inheritance and the rules imposed upon them by a society that cannot face the truth.


Vanessa will be signing books following the talk.
