Eleanor Summary


Eleanor by Jason Gurley

1962, Anchor Bend, Oregon.

The sea calls to Eleanor. Like the turn of the waves it
beckons her from the heart of the town she's always
known, from her husband Hob and their young daughter,
Agnes, to the unfathomable depths of the ocean.

1985

Agnes's daughter Eleanor is six years old. She shares
her name with the grandmother she never knew and
everything else with her identical twin, Esmerelda. But
to Agnes, only Eleanor is a constant reminder of the past.

1993

After a dark event leaves her family in tatters, Eleanor,
now fourteen, is left caring for her alcoholic mother,
whose grief has torn her apart. But when Eleanor's
reality begins to unravel, she starts to lose her grip on
time itself, slipping from the present into strange other
lands where she's in danger of losing herself altogether.

Eleanor is the story of choices that ripple through time
far beyond the moment they're made. And what happens
when, just sometimes, bonds are so powerful they reach
beyond this world and into another...
