Novelist Jacqueline Yallop talks to fellow writer Jem Poster about her latest novel, Marlford.  Marlford is the local village founded by Ellie Barton’s grandfather. Ellie has spent her life living in a dilapidated manor house in the village with her elderly father, and is often reminded of her duty to her aristocratic lineage. Marlford, however, is a village in decline. Subsidence from old salt mines is destroying buildings, books in the library are mouldering and old loyalties are shifting. When two idealistic young men squat in the closed wing of the house, they reveal to Ellie a world much wider than Marlford.

Yallop has worked as the curator of the Ruskin Collection in Sheffield and now teaches on the creative writing course at Aberystwyth University. She is author of two other novels, Kissing Alice and Obedience.
