Thanks so much for getting in touch. Glad you enjoyed Mrs Sinclair's Suitcase. I have to be honest and say, I'm not sure what happens to Roberta and Philip, although I'm pretty sure they still live in the flat above the bookshop and spend their days working there. I suspect they are a good couple, happy and content. There might be a child or two by now... who knows? And I like to think Anna visits from time to time, forming a relationship with Roberta. Let's hope so! (less)

I started to, but it was so odd hearing my words spoken by those brilliant actresses. I felt so self-conscious. I'm doing fine, thank you for asking. My second novel is out 28 March. No plans for an audio version yet, but fingers crossed there will be one. Hope this answers your questions?! (less)

In the Sweep of the Bay by Cath  Barton
"A beautifully written novella about life, family and the connections we make, set in Morecombe Bay. It's a tale of loyalty and stoicism, making the best of things. In some ways I admired Ted, in others I was frustrated by him. A very honest, unromant" Read more of this review »

In the Sweep of the Bay by Cath  Barton
"This is a beautiful portrayal of character, of relationship and of landscape. Cath Barton's novella sweeps across generations and decades but when you put the book down, you really feel that you know the characters.
I love Ted!"

“I find things hidden in books: dried flowers, locks of hair, tickets, labels, receipt, invoices, photographs, postcards, all manner of cards. I find letters, unpublished works by the ordinary, the anguished, the illiterate. Clumsily written or eloquent, they are love letters, everyday letters, secret letters and mundane letters talking about fruit and babies and tennis matches, from people signing themselves as Majorie or Jean....I can't bring myself to dispose of these snippets and snapshots of lives that once meant (or still do mean) so much.”
Louise Walters, Mrs. Sinclair's Suitcase
