Welcome Diane Saxton the author of Peregrine Island:

Peregrine Island: Diane Saxton

Imagine finding out that a painting hanging on your wall for many years is worth millions. Dusty, old, and yet the paint itself looking pristine you decide to find out its worth. It is the story of Winter, Elise and Peda three women who have inherited this painting thinking it was created and painted by Simon Crandor. Each character is portrayed separately and depicted quite vividly as the author allows readers to hear the thoughts and feelings of each one beginning with Winter Peregrine, living on a private island on the Long Island Sound with her daughter Elsie, not very close or caring about her, her granddaughter, Peda who seems closer to her than her own mother and two art experts who make their way into her home, creating havoc, appearing to appraise the painting a family heirloom and present a front that will make readers wonder just what they are really hoping to do. The painting appears to be one that few have ever viewed or scene and one of the few the author relates privately held Crandors. The two experts are the painter’s grandsons, Hamlet or Ham and an art expert who are duty bound to find out what the piece is worth and if it is authentic. As you join them taking apart the frame within this painting they find hidden documents and other paintings. How they got there is a mystery? Why another mystery? Who will profit? Who will lose when the truth comes out?
