The Confession by Jessie Burton: Bookmark in Spalding's Book of the Week
When Elise Morceau meets the writer Constance Holden, she quickly falls under her spell.
Connie is sophisticated, bold and alluring - everything Elise feels she is not. She follows Connie to LA, but in this city of strange dreams and razzle-dazzle, Elise feels even more out of her depth and makes an impulsive decision that will change her life forever.
Three decades later, Rose Simmons is trying to uncover the story of her mother, who disappeared when she was a baby. Having learned that the last person to see her was a now reclusive novelist, Rose finds herself at the door of Constance Holden's house in search of a confession...
Jessie Burton is also the author of The Miniaturist, her first novel. It was sold at an 11-publisher auction at the London Book Fair, and went on to sell in 29 other countries. It was also made into a BBC TV series.
