By the bestselling author of 'The Miniaturist' here is a simmering historical love story. It's 1967 and Odelle Bastien is a Caribbean émigré trying to make her way in London. She takes a job at the prestigious Skelton Institute of Art and is taken under the wing of the mesmerising and mysterious Marjorie Quirk. When she discovers a painting rumoured to be the work of Isaac Robles, a Spanish artist whose mysterious death has confounded the art world for decades, Odelle finds herself drawn into a web of secrets and deceptions. The truth about the painting lies in rural Spain, 1936, where Olive Schloss, the daughter of a renowned art dealer, is harbouring ambitions of her own. Olive grows close to Teresa, a young housekeeper, and Teresa's half brother Isaac Robles, a painter buoyed by the revolutionary fervour that will soon erupt into civil war. Insinuating themselves into the Schloss family's lives, Teresa and Isaac help Olive conceal her artistic talents with devastating consequences that will echo into the decades to come. Vividly rendered detail, a tale of desire and ambition and heart-stopping revelations, with two evocative settings. 393pp in paperback. Remainder mark.
