Exploring themes of ownership and abandonment, Eleanor Anstruther’s debut is a fictionalised account of the true story of Enid Campbell (1892–1964), granddaughter of the 8th Duke of Argyll, who sold her son to her sister for £500.

Interweaving one significant day in 1964 with a decade during the interwar period, A Perfect Explanation gets to the heart of what it is to be bound by gender, heritage and tradition, to fight, to lose, to fight again. In a world of privilege, truth remains the same; there are no heroes and villains, only people misunderstood. Here, in this extraordinary audiobook where the unspoken is conveyed with vivid simplicity, lies a story that will leave you reeling.

'It is rare to be delighted, disturbed and dismayed within the course of one exquisite sentence. This beautiful, coruscating true story uncovers wealth, torment and neglect amid kidnap and court cases, divorce and dissipation. No reader will be left untouched. It is, quite simply, majestic.'
Jen Hamilton-Emery, Salt publishing
