'The best new novel of 2016 for me, was The Huntingfield Paintress by Pamela Holmes ….. The story is a true one, but Holmes has written a profound novel about Mildred Holland’s marriage.'

A.N.Wilson, Spectator 2016


‘A slice of Suffolk history brought beautifully to life’

Esther Freud

'An atmospheric and enjoyable story of a singular and free-thinking woman'

Deborah Moggach


'Wry, vivid and deftly plotted, this account of how youthful follies can come back to haunt you in middle age is a real delight.'

John Preston, A Very English Scandal


'This is a book you’re dying to get back to. Holmes creates a quiet air of tension as she deftly describes the carelessness of youth and its consequences in her endearingly flawed characters. I loved it.'

Hilary Boyd, The Anniversary
