The Daughter of Lady Macbeth a Tippermuir Books Event

What if you turned out like your mother?

An evening with award-winning journalist and novelist Ajay Close who will be discussing her acclaimed novel about 21st century motherhood The Daughter of Lady Macbeth.

Join Ajay in Grayson’s Wine Café where she will discuss and read from her new book while you enjoy the café’s menu of quality wines, Italian coffee, light bites, Scottish tapas and platters, gin, bottled beers, spirits, and more.

Freya’s and Frankie’s longing for a baby has put their marriage under strain. IVF is their last hope but how do you bring a child into the world if you don’t know who you are? Freya’s mother Lilias (an actress on and off stage) will tell her nothing about her father, not even his name. When Freya signs on at a fertility clinic, she discovers a new capacity for deception in herself, while Lilias is forced to confront the limits of pretence. As the lies and secrets unravel, it seems mother and daughter have more in common than either of them suspects.
