A new novel has just been presented to us at Sun Rising. ‘Suffering the Fire’ was written by Barry Hotson, who sadly passed away before its publication this last year. Laid to rest at Sun Rising, half of the royalties from the book will be donated to The Friends of Sun Rising.
The book is based on and inspired by the 1974 Flixborough Disaster, Britain’s largest peacetime explosion until Buncefield in 2005. I understand that it is a personal tale, about family and the way that we see the world changes when we go through crisis. When I’ve read it, I’ll write a review!
The book is available through the usual channels : we would encourage you to order it from your local bookshop, but it is also available online. Have a look at our web page : https://sunrising.co.uk/friends/barryhotson.html
