Synopsis

Woman Enters Left by Jessica Brockmole

1952. B-list movie star Louise Wilde's acting career has stalled and her marriage is on shaky ground when she learns she's inherited screenwriter Florence Daniels' entire estate, a woman she has never met. Her confusion grows when she discovers a cache of old photographs of Ms. Daniels with her late mother. 1926. Two friends, Ethel Wild and Florrie Daniels, embark on a cross-country adventure in Florrie's Model T. Florrie is moving to Hollywood while Ethel is trying to catch up with her husband in Nevada before he's able to start divorce proceedings. Told through diary entries, letters and film scripts, these three women's parallel stories and road trips see them journeying towards answers and destinations they never expected.

About the Author

Jessica Brockmole grew up in the Midwest but began writing Letters from Skye while she was living in Edinburgh. After her second child was born, she and her husband escaped the city and spent a week on the Isle of Skye. The story came to her on the journey home and she started scribbling notes in the car. To begin with, the outpouring was less a novel than an extended letter to herself, written late at night when everyone else had gone to bed. A letter reminding her not to lose touch with the people she loved, and reassuring her that she would be stronger for overcoming her fears. Jessica now lives in Indiana with her husband and two children. Letters from Skye, her first novel, has been sold in twenty-two countries.
