“Mother sold her son for £500 to her sister,” A PERFECT EXPLANATION by Eleanor Anstruther,

Enid, when she was young

Eleanor Anstruther is a woman who always knew that her aristocratic father carried a dark secret. He was shockingly sold to his aunt by his mother for the sum of £500.

Eleanor Anstruther, an author like her father, interviewed him near the end of his life about his secret. He gave permission for Eleanor to have access to the family archive of letters and court orders surrounding the  case. This story reimagined beautifully and is now a book: A PERFECT EXPLANATION.

Eleanor has been shortlisted for the The Desmond Elliot Prize 2019.
