Goldsboro Books are delighted to share the news that the winner of our
2021 Glass Bell award is
People of Abandoned Character
by Clare Whitfield
The decision was pretty much unanimous. Clare Whitfield’s thrilling debut impressed the whole Goldsboro team with its fresh and unique take on the Whitechapel Murders. Told from the point of view of a woman who wonders whether her violent and manipulative husband could be Jack the Ripper, it’s also a thoughtful and compelling exploration of the endless violence faced by women of all walks of life. We’re delighted to award this year’s Glass Bell to Clare Whitfield – a hugely exciting new name in fiction, we know that she will go far!
Founded in 2017, the Glass Bell is awarded annually to a compelling novel, of any genre – from romance and thrillers, to historical, speculative and literary fiction – with brilliant characterisation and a distinct voice that is confidently written and assuredly realised. The winner is decided by a vote by the entire Goldsboro Books
