Convinced her art dealer father will scorn her paintings because she is a woman, Olive hides her considerable talent by claiming that her friend Isaac was their creator. Living in Spain in the late 1930’s , their lives are changed forever by the civil war. In London thirty years on, Odelle’s poetic talent is encouraged by the mysterious Marjorie Quick through whom Odelle discovers a link to the past.
Well written and a compelling read.
