Cover Your Eyes Synopsis

Eva was once a legendary fashion designer until, mysteriously, she retired. Now widowed, she lives with her family in Salix House, the home she's owned and loved for forty years. When the family announces it's time to sell, Eva is deeply reluctant. The house contains memories and secrets that are part of her, although she never shares them. Megan is a fashion journalist working in London who interviewed Eva for a magazine. Torn apart by the brutal end of a love affair, Megan is drawn back to Salix House and Eva. Decades apart in age, the two women share a bond. Both are hiding something, but perhaps together they can confront their fears, their past pain and their uncertain futures - and discover the truth of Salix House's secrets.

The Good Book Guide Review

Eva Conway is a famed fashion designer of the 1960s and ’70s, these days the subject of retrospective articles and ‘where are they now?’ features. When journalist Megan Pritchard comes to Eva’s beautiful home, Salix House, to interview her, the assignment proves to be the starting point for a friendship. But both women are suppressing bad memories, and it’s their common feelings of guilt on which their bond is based, guilt that appears to manifest itself in strange ways … Engaging storytelling, and period detail spanning seventy years make this a welcome return to adult fiction from a much-loved author.
