Rachel Hore worked in London publishing for many years before moving with her family to Norwich, where she teaches publishing at the University of East Anglia. Her sixth novel, The Silent Tide, was published in September 2013 and explores women’s roles in the fascinating world of post-war London.
Her previous novels are The Dream House; The Memory Garden; The Glass Painter’s Daughter, which was shortlisted for the 2010 Romantic Novel of the Year award; A Place of Secrets, which was picked by Richard and Judy for their book club; and A Gathering Storm, which was shortlisted for the RoNA Historical Novel of the Year 2012.
‘With a serious eye for exquisite detail, Hore’s latest, brilliantly crafted novel aptly follows a photographer, Lucy. She takes a journey to capture past, life-changing family secrets, embracing three generations along the way, across Cornwall, London East Anglia and Occupied France’ — Daily Mirror review of A Gathering Storm.
