Shelf life: Kate Furnivall

Historical novelist Kate Furnival shares her five favourite books with Judith Spelman

Kate Furnivall has written nine books that are packed with colourful incidents. Her first book, The Russian Concubine, is based on the life of her mother, a refugee from the Russian revolution.

After university where she studied English, Kate joined a non-fiction publisher and then went on to work in advertising where she met her future husband, a crime writer who writes under the name of Neville Steed.

Her ninth book, The Liberation, was published in November 2016, and depicts the life of an Italian girl following the end of World War II as she tries to clear her father’s name of treason.

‘I was quite surprised that I didn’t find it difficult to choose these five books because I had read them so many times,’ says Kate.
