MEET ME AT THE MUSEUM
Tina Hopgood is long time married, living in farming land in Suffolk. When she writes a letter of regret to a man she has never met, she doesn’t expect a reply. When Anders Larsen, a lonely museum curator, answers it, neither does he. They’re both searching for something – they just don’t know it yet.
Anders has lost his wife, along with his hopes and dreams for the future. Tina is trapped in a marriage she doesn’t remember choosing. Slowly their correspondence blossoms as they bare their souls to each other with stories of joy, anguish and discovery. Then Tina’s letters suddenly cease, and Anders is thrown into despair, wondering if their relationship can survive.
Anne Youngson became a published writer in her seventies after many years of a hugely successful other career in senior management in the UK car industry. She undertook a writing course at Oxford Brookes University and Meet Me At The Museum emerged from those studies. She has supported many charities in governance roles, including Chair of the Writers in Prison Network, which provided residencies in prisons for writers. She has travelled the UK extensively at events and festivals talking about her novel writing. She lives in Oxfordshire and is married with two children and three grandchildren.
