Kate Riordan After an auction between six publishers, two novels from Kate Riordan were signed by Penguin division Michael Joseph for a six-figure sum. Fiercombe Manor is a story of two women in different eras, the 1890s and 1930s, set within an isolated Gloucestershire manor house. The second novel signed is another dual-narrative historical novel. Vanessa Curtis The Earth is Singing by Vanessa Curtis is the story of Hanna, a 15-year-old Jewish girl of Riga, whose life is turned upside down when her father is taken away by Soviet forces. Hanna and her family move to a ghetto with 30,000 others and endure starvation, forced labour and imprisonment. The novel is based on the true story of the Jews of Riga. Publication is due on January 27, 2015 which is Holocaust Memorial Day and the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Marilynne Robinson Lila, new from Marilynne Robinson, is based on the same world as her previous novels [Pulitzer-winning] Gilead and [Orange Prize-winning] Home. Lila is the wife of character John Ames, and Robinson’s new novel will tell her story. Robinson has also won the PEN/Hemingway Award for best first novel with her 1981 title Housekeeping.
