Costa-winner Christie first came to Henley in 2018 with her No.1 bestseller The Language of Kindness, a memoir of her time as a nurse. During the pandemic she briefly returned to clinical work and published The Courage of Care. She returns with Quilt on Fire:The Messy Magic of Midlife, a frank, funny and inspiring look at the joy of letting go, the unstoppable power of female friendship and the struggle to raise teenagers as a single parent.
