A childhood mistake. A lifetime of regrets—the poignant and bittersweet new novel from beloved writer Isabel Wolff, author of A Vintage Affair
Jenni loves her job as a ghostwriter—it satisfies her insatiable curiosity about people, and she’s helped create everything from cookbooks to celebrity biographies. It also means that she can hide behind the stories of others, and not think about her own life too much . . .
But when she starts work on the wartime memoirs of a survivor from the Japanese internment camps in Java, striking coincidences force Jenni to examine her role in a tragedy that has haunted her since childhood. Gripping, moving and beautifully researched, Ghostwritten delivers Isabel Wolff ’s signature blend of pathos, mystery and romance. Wolff’s legions of fans and new readers alike will be riveted by this touching, layered story, which sheds light on a forgotten chapter of history and shimmers with an element of the supernatural that will send tingles down the reader’s spine.
“A brilliant, tender and thought-provoking read.” —THE LADY
