So thrilled The Huntingfield Paintress was re-launched by Bloodhound Books in October. Love the new cover.
Wyld Dreamers was also re-issued this summer supported by a quirky trailer on social media. It captured the novel's dreamy mood perfectly:

A chat with Deborah Klee on Castaway Books about my five favorite books.
'Wry, vivid and deftly plotted, this account of how youthful follies can come back to haunt you in middle age is a real delight.'
'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.'
'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’
'An atmospheric and enjoyable story of a singular and free-thinking woman'
