Join us for a glass of wine to celebrate the launch of local author Sophie Irwin’s new book A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting, the biggest historical fiction launch this year.

About the Author. Sophie grew up and was educated in Sherborne and is the daughter of Mike and Louise from Castle Gardens.

The Book.

Kitty Talbot needs a fortune. Or rather, she needs a husband who has a fortune. This is 1818 after all, and only men have the privilege of seeking their own riches.

With just twelve weeks until Kitty and her sisters are made homeless, launching herself into London society is the only avenue open to her. Kitty must use every ounce of cunning and ingenuity she possesses to climb the ranks.

The only one to see through her plans is the worldly Lord Radcliffe and he is determined to thwart her at any cost.

Can Kitty secure a fortune and save her sisters from poverty? There is not a day to lose and no one – not even a lord – will stand in her way…A sassy, witty, delicious tale’ SOPHIE KINSELLA

’A formidable Austentacious talent – I can’t rave enough about it’ JANICE HALLETT

’Plucky, witty and bright’ NITA PROSE

The season is about to begin – and there’s not a minute to lose…

Event Details. 6.30 for 7pm at the Butterfly Room, Castle Gardens. Tickets £2 redeemable against the book available from Winstone’s , 8 Cheap Street
