-- Talk Story TV presents Irina Shapiro talking about her new book, Precious Bones on Oct. 15th at 1pm MT.
Here is some of what Shapiro has to say about Precious Bones - When the skeletal remains of a young woman and her baby are found entombed behind the kitchen wall of a historic Tudor building, Cassandra is overcome with grief. She seems to know who the young woman was, but not how she knows this, or how the woman came to be there. Cassandra becomes inexplicably drawn to the house, and the mystery of the "Bones of Blackfriars."
At the risk of sabotaging her well-ordered life, Cassandra moves into the house, where she is suddenly confronted with strange happenings that she can’t understand or rationalize to herself. Most people would probably just dismiss the situation to avoid shaking up their safe lives, but being a writer, Cassandra just can’t walk away from a great story, especially if she happens to be the leading lady of her own tale. To complicate things further, Cassandra’s boyfriend is furious with her for buying the old house and ruining their plans to move in together, and her mysterious new publisher seems to be something more than he appears to be, stirring up feelings that could only lead to disaster. As Cassandra settles into her new home and begins to learn the truth about the Thorne siblings, who occupied the house during the reign of Elizabeth I, her own life takes an unexpected turn, and she finds that her fate is linked to the Thornes in ways she never dreamed of.
