The Secrets of Midwives has been labelled “enchanting” by The Herald Sun, “smart and engaging” by Publishers Weekly, and New York Times bestselling authors Liane Moriarty and Emily Giffin have praised Hepworth’s debut English language novel as “women’s fiction at its finest” and “totally absorbing.”
Here Hepworth shares some ideas about the cast of an adaptation of her latest novel, The Things We Keep:
Ah, the movie. I think about this all the time. Here is my cast for The Things We Keep:Visit Sally Hepworth's website, Facebook page, and Twitter perch.
Anna, a 38-year-old feisty paramedic, now with early onset Alzheimer’s – I would love to see Emily Blunt in this role – she just has the strength and character to pull it off. I also can see Julia Roberts or Jessica Chastain in this role.
Luke, 41, also with early-onset dementia, is shy but has a gentle strength about him — I think John Krasinski or Ryan Reynolds would do a great job of this role.
Eve, 35, British, is a former wealthy wife, now a cook at a nursing home. Kate Winslet could play Eve in her sleep. Also, Jennifer Garner would be amazing in this role.
As for blonde, quirky, 7-year-old Clementine – I pictured Mackenzie Foy the whole time I was writing her.
