The great-niece of Virginia Woolf is to publish her debut novel in July with Three Hares Publishing.
Presenter and broadcaster Emma Woolf’s debut novel, England’s Lane, explores timeless themes of love, loss, betrayal and new beginnings. Told from the point of view of three people – a man, his wife, and his mistress – the book looks at the cost of marital infidelity and the challenges of single motherhood, the legacy of suicide and the healing power of love.
Yasmin Standen of Three Hares acquired world rights to the book directly from the author.
Woolf said England’s Lane was the novel she had wanted to write for more than a decade, and hoped it wouldn’t leave her great-aunt “turning in her grave”.
