BOOKED OUT: Join Kirsty Manning for a Sparkling Champagne Evening with The French Gift

May 8, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for our fabulous Mother’s Day Weekend Event!
A forgotten manuscript threatens to unravel the past …

The French Gift is a spellbinding story of female friendship, longing and sacrifice through war and loss, bringing together the present and the past.

Inspired by a true story of iconic French Resistance fighter, Agnes Humbert, whose secret journal shed light on a little-known aspect of World War II, The French Gift will captivate readers from beginning to unforgettable end.

Kirsty’s first novel was the enchanting The Midsummer Garden published in 2017. Her second book, the bestselling The Jade Lily, was published in 2018 and her third, The Lost Jewels, in 2020. Her novels are also published in the US and in Europe.

‘Effortless flitting from one epoch to another underpin Kirsty Manning’s cut-above historical fiction novels.’ Australian Women’s Weekly
