And tomorrow (Friday), she will be stopping off in Wooler, with readings, a talk and a book-signing.

Cuthbert of Farne is the first mainstream historical novel about St Cuthbert. It is published by Sacristy Press and is available for loan from Northumberland Libraries, or to purchase online or from local bookshops.

Katharine said: “Growing up in north Northumberland, I have a sense of personal connection both to St Cuthbert and to the landscapes of the North East where he lived.

“It has been a joy to write this novel and I hope it will shed new light on the life of the North’s greatest saint.”

She wil be at the Cheviot Centre from 10.30am. Admission is £4, coffee and tea provided.
