An Evening with Phaedra Patrick

Welcome to ‘Wishes Under the Willow Tree’.

In the quiet village of Noon Sun, Benedict Stone has settled into a complacent and predictable routine. Business at his jewellery shop has dried up, his marriage is on the rocks. His life is in need of a jump start. But then a surprise arrives at his door.

Gemma is Benedict’s audacious teenage niece – the daughter of his estranged brother, Charlie. The two Stone brothers haven’t spoken in almost two decades, since Charlie left for America. Reckless and stubborn, Gemma invites herself into Benedict’s world and turns it upside down. But she might be just what he needs to get his life back on track…

Phaedra Patrick is the bestselling author of two novels THE CURIOUS CHARMS OF ARTHUR PEPPER and WISHES UNDER THE WILLOW TREE.

Her first novel, THE CURIOUS CHARMS OF ARTHUR PEPPER was translated into over twenty languages worldwide, with film rights optioned in the US. It was awarded the Prix des Lectrices 2017 in France. Nina George, New York Times bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop said: “Phaedra Patrick understands the soul. Eccentric, charming and wise…This book will illuminate your heart.”

You are invited to join Phaedra for a special evening at Central Library celebrating the launch of WISHES UNDER THE WILLOW TREE.
