Welcome to my website!

Book of Colours, my latest novel, will be released on April 23.

London, 1321: In a small shop in Paternoster Row, three people are drawn together around the creation of a magnificent book, an illuminated manuscript of prayers, a book of hours. Even though the commission seems to answer the aspirations of each one of them, their own desires and ambitions threaten its completion. As each struggles to see the book come into being, it will change everything they have understood about their place in the world.

‘Robyn Cadwallader fashions words with the same delicate, colourful intensity that her 14th century illuminators brought to their illustrated manuscripts. Book of Colours brings alive a harsh but rich past, filled with the fantasies, fears, sly wit and tender longings of the medieval imagination.’

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed your book. Learned about Middle Ages a little and especially felt the mindset of the times. Thank you.

    Ps I got this at our library.


    1. Dear Bonnie, Thanks so much for getting in touch. Delighted to hear that you enjoyed The Anchoress and could tune in to the medieval frame of mind. Great to know your library holds a copy! Best wishes, Robyn
