 About the Book:
Sarah’s grandmother was the youngest of 12 and when she was a young girl, her older sister was about 20 and she and her baby died in childbirth.

“That is what the family was told and believed for years, until it finally emerged that the baby had lived. But because the husband didn’t want our family to know, he sent the baby off to the United States to be brought up.

Sarah found out about this in 1999 and it was a huge shock to the whole family to learn there had been a child born which no one knew anything about. It seems that sort of thing happened quite a lot at the time.”

The desperately sad story struck a real chord with Sarah and as a speech and drama teacher, she used the idea as the backdrop for a dramatisation during her class.

The story stayed with her and she developed characters and eventually she decided to give it legs and turn it into a story. The book is based on this true story and the events were among the seeds which got her started.

Once she started writing, the ideas just came tumbling out and she couldn’t stop.

Her book, about a secret based in the Twenties, has affected generations right up until the present day, and her book couldn’t be more timely. Buy Book Here!

 About the Author
Sarah Gilbert is an actress, voice over artist, producer, director, presenter, script writer and most recently published author.

She is one of Irelands leading voice over artists. She has been working as a voice over for ten years. Previously, she trained as a Speech and Drama teacher with the Guildhall School of Music and Drama London, and subsequently, a Post Graduate Diploma in professional Acting from The Drama Studio, London. She returned to Ireland to pursue her acting and radio career. Credits include Fair City, The Clinic, Laws of Attraction, Omagh and numerous tv commercials as a voice over as well as an actress. Also, a number of corporate videos.

The opportunity arose to try her hand at script writing. Writing, directing, producing and acting in her own dramas resulted in being short listed at Irelands prestigious PPI Radio awards, three years running, and in 2010 she won a Gold PPI Award for her Radio Drama, The Terror of Leap Castle.

Sarah took time off from her acting work to dedicate herself to being a full time Mum. During this time, she created a studio at home and is in demand throughout Ireland, north and south as a voice over artist. She records television commercials for UTV, radio commercials and promos for LMFM, Galway Bay, Cork 96 fm, Dublin’s 4 fm, UTV, as well as numerous other radio stations north and south of the border, UK and Europe.

She has also written and recorded a number of documentaries, recorded radio drama for RTE, cartoons and trails for BBC and the Disney Channel, substantial recordings for the world wide web and as the signature voice for a global industry.
She is also a regular MC at events and fashion Shows.
