When art school graduate, Eleanor Roy, is recruited by the War Artists Advisory Committee, she comes one step closer to realising her dream of becoming one of the few female war artists. But breaking into the art establishment proves difficult until Eleanor meets painter, Jack Valante, only to be separated by his sudden posting overseas.
Although reluctant to leave her family at home, Kathryn can't refuse her grandmother Eleanor's request to travel to London to help her return a precious painting to its artist. But when the search uncovers a long-held family secret, Kathryn has to make a choice to return home or risk her family's future, as Eleanor shows her that safeguarding the future is sometimes worth more than protecting the past.
Eleanor's Secret is at once a surprising mystery and compelling love story.
Eleanor's Secret is published by Allen & Unwin, RRP $29.99.
My Thoughts On The Story
A dual timeline story ranging: 1942 and 2010, that was fabulous reading. Eleanor's Secret by author Caroline Beecham has some twists in the story and many likeable characters that pulls at the heartstrings.
