How times change. Last year, The Huntingfield Paintress was about to go on a  323 mile journey  by Henry Hoover, rickshaw, bicycle and Unicorn and other quirky ways to promote  Suffolk's 44 libraries.









'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
