The Rosary Garden In The Gutter

I mentioned Nicola White’s debut IN THE ROSARY GARDEN (Cargo Publishing) a couple of weeks ago, a novel that comes to us with impressive advance praise from Declan Hughes, Denise Mina and Val McDermid.
  Set in Ireland in 1984, the novel opens with the discovery of a dead infant on the grounds of a convent. Complicating the tragedy is the fact that this is not the first time the schoolgirl who finds the body has unearthed a dead baby …
  As part of her UK and Ireland tour, Nicola White launches IN THE ROSARY GARDEN on Tuesday 25th March at The Gutter Bookshop in Cow’s Lane, Temple Bar at 6.30pm.
