Event Description

In this Book Club Q&A, we will speak to Christine Webber. After 30 years of writing non-fiction for Hodder and Piatkus, Christine crossed the big divide into fiction; fiction, she decided, that would focus on narratives about people over fifty. Her first three novels in this genre were Who’d Have Thought It?, It’s Who We Are and So Many Ways of Loving. Now, there is a fourth.

Watching From the Wings is a heartwarming tale of devotion, friendship, joy and passion, but also one involving disappointment, duplicity and betrayal. We all have our own journey of love. Katharine’s is more complex than most. And she comes to realise that she has always chosen the wrong door whenever she had the chance to exit by a more promising one.

At the age of 62, can she make a fresh start, or is it too late?

Watching from the Wings can be purchased as a paperback from Bookshop.org here (also available from Waterstones) or is available on Kindle here.

  • Duration: 1 hour

Meet the Host, Mahalia

As Events Lead Rest Less, Mahalia loves chatting to members of the community at events! She loves workling closely with Rest Less members, and hosts, to come up with interesting and exiting new ideas to bring to the events calendar. Outside of work, Mahalia is an artist who makes playful 3D items and is a lover of all nature and animals!

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.

How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)

Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
