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!
