Deb Friend News
Friend of Deb and past guest to the Ball Eliza Graham has gotten some wonderful news of late. Following autumn the publication of her second novel, RESTITUTION, Pan Macmillan has offered Eliza Graham a two-book contract for a further two novels, the first of which, provisionally entitled JUBILEE, centers around the mysterious disappearance of a child from a Silver Jubilee party and the subsequent uncovering of old family secrets. Meanwhile, RESTITUTION, a love-across-the-lines novel set in the eastern marches of Germany in 1945, has just sold Norwegian rights to Cappelen Damm.
