Eloise

By Judy Finnigan (Electronic Book, 2013)
Yesterday I almost saw her.

I was standing on the sun deck, looking out to sea, revelling in the unexpected warmth of the February sun. A butterfly trembled on a nearby buddleia and suddenly I smelled her perfume.

She wasn't there, of course. How could she be when I had seen her lying in her coffin just two weeks ago, the day before she was buried, her casket surrounded by the scented candles she loved?

She lay in Cornish ground now...

She was a daughter, a wife, a mother. She was a friend. But what secrets did Eloise take to her grave?

Compulsively readable and haunting, this is the Sunday Times bestselling debut novel from Book Club champion, Judy Finnigan.

  • "Exudes a deep and soulful sense of place. Romantic and rain-lashed, du Maurier's Cornwall haunts the pages of Eloise as powerfully as the spirit of the elusive heroine herself. A stirring and intriguing read." (Louise Candlish ).

  • "Highly readable, incredibly moving in parts, and with wonderful echoes of Daphne Du Maurier, Eloise had me turning pages late into the night." (Dorothy Koomson).

  • "A moving meditation on grief, family bonds, motherhood and female friendship." (Sunday Express).

  • "A haunting, pacy page-turner, with a real ghostly feel - a must read." (Fabulous Magazine ).

  • "A creepy ghost story . . . the real star of the book is Judy's beloved Cornwall - a wild beautiful backdrop to the tale that is almost a character in itself." (Bella).

  • "Atmospheric, creepy and original, Judy has written a blinder of a first novel" (The Sun).
