Legend to publish new Parkin novel

Legend Press is to publish a "powerful" new novel by Cassandra Parkin called Lily's House.

Legend Press acquired world rights for the novel, which is about family secrets, divided loyalties, and "how far we’ll go to protect the ones we love". The book is inspired by Parkin’s love of Cornwall, where her grandparents lived and she spent her summers as a child.

Lauren Parsons, commissioning editor of Legend Press said: "We are delighted to be continuing to work with Cassandra on her brilliant third novel. Cassandra is a strong writing talent, with a beautiful prosaic style. Lily’s House is a story that will stay with you for a long time."

Lily's House will be published on 15th October 2016. Parkin's previous novels The Summer We All Ran Away (2013), and The Beach Hut (2015) were also published by Legend Press.
