The Edinburgh Skating Club Paperback / softback
Paperback / softback
When you look at a painting, what do you really see?When eighteenth-century poet Alison Cockburn accepts a light-hearted challenge from her friend Katherine Hume to live as a man, in order to infiltrate Edinburgh's all-male skating club, little do they both realise how her new identity will shape their future. And in the present, art historian Claire Sharp receives a mysterious request: to settle once and for all the true provenance of the iconic painting The Skating Minister. The Edinburgh Skating Club is the tale of one woman's mission to infiltrate a male-dominated society.
Imaginative, romantic and ultimately moving, this time-shift adventure celebrates the women overlooked by history - and, above all, love, in all its unexpected forms.
