Lawrence novel to Freight Books

Freight Books has acquired rights to a debut novel by Scottish food writer Sue Lawrence.

Adrian Searle bought world English rights to Fields of Blue Flax from Jenny Brown at Jenny Brown Associates.

Set in Edinburgh and Angus, Fields of Blue Flax is “the compelling tale of an innocent interest in family history uncovering long-buried dark secrets”.

When cousins Chris and Mags find out something about their Victorian great-great-grandmother, their own lives become troubled in a disturbing parallel with the past.

Freight will publish in spring 2015.
