Elizabeth Wein

Elizabeth Wein was born in New York, and grew up in England, Jamaica and Pennsylvania. It is her love of flying that partly inspired the idea for Code Name Verity. Born in New York City in 1964, Elizabeth moved to England when she was three, and Jamaica when she was six. Elizabeth loved Jamaica and as a child was fluent in Jamaican patois; but in 1973 her parents separated, and Elizabeth and her siblings ended up back in the US living with their mother Carol Flocken in Harrisburg, PA. When Carol died in a car accident in 1978, Carol's parents took the children in and raised them. Elizabeth went to Yale University, spent a work-study year back in England, and then spent seven years getting a PhD in Folklore at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where she held a Javits Fellowship. In 1995 Elizabeth moved to England with new husband Tim, and then to Scotland in 2000.

'... for all the story’s mystery and history – some of it quite ancient – two other elements take hold: the intriguing characters, brimming with life and the evocative language seeded with Scottish words and phrasings ...'
Booklist

From the internationally-acclaimed bestselling author of Code Name Verity comes a stunning new story of pearls, love and murder.

Sixteen-year-old Julie Beaufort-Stuart is returning to her family's ancestral home in Perthshire for one last summer. It is not an idyllic return to childhood. Her grandfather's death has forced the sale of the house and estate and this will be a summer of goodbyes. Not least to the McEwen family – Highland travellers who have been part of the landscape for as long as anyone can remember – loved by the family, loathed by the authorities. Tensions are already high when a respected London archivist goes missing, presumed murdered. Suspicion quickly falls on the McEwens but Julie knows not one of them would do such a thing and is determined to prove everyone wrong. And then she notices the family's treasure trove of pearls is missing. This beautiful and evocative novel is the story of the irrepressible and unforgettable Julie, set in the year before the Second World War and the events of Code Name Verity. It is also a powerful portrayal of a community under pressure and one girl's determination for justice.
