Meet the Author
Jennifer Lash wrote her first novel, The Burial, at the age of twenty three in 1961, and this was followed by four more during the next twenty years. She married Mark Fiennes, and with their six children they moved between Suffolk, Wiltshire, Ireland, and London. In 1986 she learned she had cancer and, after a painful operation, embarked upon a solitary pilgrimage through France to Santiago de Compostela, a journey about which she wrote in her book On Pilgrimage. Throughout her illness she continues to write, leaving Blood Ties, perhaps her finest work, behind. She died in 1993.
