​​​​​​​Literary Teas: Daughter of Time In-Person

Good books, good tea & good company. What could be better to end your busy day?

Literary Teas combines literary works of fiction with cozy cups of local tea, from Greenfield’s local tea shop: Alchemy of Avalon. Join Lisa and Diane for a GPL discussion of Daughter of Time, by Josephine Tey.

The Daughter of Time is a 1951 detective novel by Josephine Tey, concerning a modern police officer's investigation into the alleged crimes of King Richard III of England. Feeling bored while confined to bed in hospital with a broken leg, a friend of his suggests he should amuse himself by researching a historical mystery. She brings him some pictures of historical characters, aware of Grant's interest in human faces. He becomes intrigued by a portrait of King Richard III. He prides himself on being able to read a person's character from his appearance, and King Richard seems to him a gentle, kind and wise man. Why is everyone so sure that he was a cruel murderer?

With the help of other friends and acquaintances, Grant investigates Richard's life and the case of the Princes in the Tower, testing out his theories on the doctors and nurses who attend to him.

Copies of the book are available at the Library. To reserve your cup of tea, email us at librarian@greenfieldpubliclibrary.org.

This program, made possible through the generosity of the Greenfield Public Library, is free and open to the public.
