Author Event with Nicola Edwards

Conwy Culture Centre - Saturday 9 December, 13:00 to Saturday 9 December, 15:00

Join Nicola Edwards at Conwy Culture Centre for a special author event to celebrate the release off her novel This Thing of Darkness.


The storm that dismantles a dynasty… It’s 1780 in wild and windswept Yorkshire. Sixteen-year-old Heathcliff runs from the only home he has ever known in a squall of pain and fury.

Blown into an inn on the edge of the moors, sodden, rejected, and hankering for revenge, he steals a horse and sets out for Liverpool in search of answers. The town he arrives in is a brutal new world, brimming in equal measure with risk and opportunity. Here, Heathcliff might map his future, make his fortune, forge a role for himself. But at what cost…

Reimagining the three years during which Heathcliff is absent from Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, This Thing of Darkness traverses countries and oceans in pursuit of one of literature’s best known characters.
