Lauren Chater (The Lace Weaver, Gulliver’s Wife) and Kate Murdoch (Stone Circle, The Orange Grove) are bestselling authors of historical fiction.
In The Orange Grove, Henriette must balance her values and the wellbeing of her children in a world where status is a matter of life and death. In Gulliver’s Wife, the delusions of her husband place Mary Burton Gulliver under suspicion. She navigates her safety and that of her daughter as she sets out on a journey to discover the truth.
Lauren Chater and Kate Murdoch are joined in conversation by Melbourne writer Claire Halliday to discuss historical fiction and how societal pressures and judgements of early eighteenth century Europe influence the actions of their characters and their novels as a whole.
