Book News: Cover revealed for The Very Picture of You by Isabel Wolff

7 Jun

I’ve been a fan of Isabel Wolff ever since my flatmate lent me her first book The Trials of Tiffany Trott over ten years ago! I loved her last book A Vintage Affair and am eagerly awaiting the publication of Isabel’s new novel in September so I was excited to spot her latest cover on Amazon last night. It’s a bit of a change from her previous covers and a little pale for my liking but The Very Picture of You sounds gripping and I can’t wait to read it:

A forbidden love, a life-long secret, and one chance to make the right decision.

Ella has always been an artist, jotting down pictures from a young age, and now in her thirties she has made it her profession. Commissioned to capture memories, fading beauty and family moments, her sitters often reveal more about themselves than merely their outward appearance.

When Ella’s younger sister Chloe asks her to paint a portrait of her new fiancé Nate, Ella is reluctant. He is a brash American who Ella thinks has proposed far too fast, so the thought of spending many hours alone with him fills her with dread. But before long Ella realises there is more to Nate than meets the eye.

Beautifully inter-weaving the stories of Ella’s sitters – from the old lady with a wartime secret, to the handsome politician who has a confession to make – with Ella’s own hunt for her real father and slow realization that she is falling in love with the wrong man.
