Sally Magnusson - Music in the Dark  

Sally Magnusson is a Scottish author and broadcaster. After focussing on journalism and non-fiction, including the Sunday Times bestseller Where Memories Go, she moved into fiction with the publication in 2018 of her debut novel, The Sealwoman’s Gift, shortlisted for 6 literary prizes. Her second novel, The Ninth Child, was published in March 2020 to critical acclaim. 
Join Sally to hear about her third novel, Music in the Dark, published by John Murray Press in May 2023, which explores the Highland Clearances and their aftermath through the experiences of the women who tried to resist eviction in the township of Greenyards in Strathcarron in 1854. The action takes place over one night in July 1884, in a tenement room-and-kitchen in the town of Rutherglen near Glasgow but roams back over generations, as a displaced, working-class Highlandwoman bearing old injuries opens her mind to the man who came looking for lodgings. 
Sally will be interviewed by well-known literary agent, Jenny Brown.
