A lovely review of Libby Gleeson’s wonderful novel, Eleanor Elizabeth, in the new Second Look edition, has just been published in Reading Time. Here’s a short extract:
Truth be told, I loved this book. Once in, I couldn’t put it down. The slightly unusual way in which Eleanor thought intrigued me. Random thoughts are scattered throughout the book- things that she has heard, read or said that, although jarring for the first few occurrences, soon fit in like the missing pieces of a puzzle. The story flows easily, a quick but extremely enjoyable read.
The new edition of the book also includes the occasional line drawing in black and white, sketches of scenes and landscapes that carefully accentuate the novel and storyline in beautiful simplicity.
