Can art be redemptive? Tough questions are posed by writer Thomas Eccleshare's first radio play.

Heather by Thomas Eccleshare
A reclusive children’s writer becomes a publishing phenomenon. Her books are treasured across the country. Her public are desperate to know just who is behind these wonderful stories. So the publisher presses her to do some publicity, but she constantly makes excuses. What is she afraid of? A gripping morality tale about language, prejudice, redemption and what matters more, the story or the storyteller.
