Memoir set in the ANDAMAN SEA
The Eliza Doll
Location(s): Iceland, United Kingdom
Era(s): 1989s to present
Ellie and her ex-husband Jonah have gone on a trip to Iceland together at the request of their grown-up daughter. Standing in the cacophonous roar of an ice-ridden waterfall they reflect on what they might have done to change the way things turned out. Back in the UK, Ellie sells her home and lives on the road in a converted van with only her dog for company, creating an uncanny doll which she can’t bear to sell at the craft fairs where she makes her living. It takes the unravelling of the past to make Ellie finally face up to the truth of what happened to her daughter, and find a way to move on.
