Product description


Stunning first novel. A compelling mystery and atmospheric love story, which moves at intriguing pace across Europe: concluding spectacularly, in a mystical Venice.

About the Author

Ginny was brought up in the Cotswolds and educated in England. She spent a year working in the U.S.A, before travelling extensively throughout America, Canada and Mexico. A water-colourist, after leaving school, Ginny attended the Warwickshire College of art, and, more recently, studied both at West Dean College and in Italy. She exhibited, successfully, in the West End of London. Ginny brought up a large, boisterous, family of four, based in London and in Sussex; in an old farmhouse, down a long, rough, track, in the middle of a large, derelict, plum orchard. Here, a few years ago, Ginny put aside her paints and started to write. She enrolled for an Arvon writing course: it was winter and freezing cold, but taught by two well-published authors, she was filled with enthusiasm and given endless encouragement. In the beautiful, frosted, Devonshire countryside, she learnt how to polish and finish her manuscripts. Passionate about travelling, particularly across Europe, either by car, train, or even by foot, she takes every opportunity, either alone or on business with her husband, to gather information and material, as she did when painting watercolours. Ginny loves being surrounded by her noisy family. But, whenever possible, retreats to a refuge in the Alps, where she likes best to join the eagles, high up in the mountains, free from ordinary, mundane, matters and from where she can view the world from another dimension. There, she finds her inspiration for the stories she has to tell.
