"Jason Gurley will be a household name one day."
– Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author of Wool

1985. The death of Eleanor's twin sister tears her family apart. Her father blames her mother for the accident. When Eleanor's mother looks at her, she sees only the daughter she lost. Their wounded family crumbles under the weight of their shared grief.

1993. Eleanor is fourteen years old when it happens for the first time... when she walks through an ordinary door at school and finds herself in another world. It happens again and again, but it's only a curiosity until that day at the cliffs. The day when Eleanor dives... and something rips her out of time itself.

And on the other side, someone is waiting for her.

Review:

“Th[e] violent rift between past and present affords each woman the chance to offer her own kind of repentance and forgiveness and redemption. In the end, “Eleanor” shows that one never knows what can happen when the reset button is pushed.” 
–Washington Post

“Eleanor is deep — a really poignant, moving story that will surprise you with how smart it is. The novel turns a traditional tragic narrative on its head with compelling elements of science fiction and fantasy. It’s a touching story that sneaks up on you, working on multiple levels that pay off in a series of emotional uppercuts in the final pages. Read it and weep.”
–Daniel H. Wilson, bestselling author of Robopocalypse
 
“Jason Gurley will be a household name one day.”
 –Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author of Wool
 
“A virtuoso performance... Eleanor might just be the book of the year.”
–Russell Blake, bestselling author of Jet
 
“Reminiscent of Neil Gaiman... enchanting, magical and powerful.”
—Ernie Lindsey, bestselling author of Skynoise

“Jason Gurley’s Eleanor is an ambitious book of many wonders, an intricately crafted saga spanning three generations, by turns otherworldly and heartbreakingly true.”
Elizabeth Collison, author of Some Other Town

“Haunting...if you liked The Ocean at the End of the Lane, you'll love Eleanor.”
Peter Cawdron, author of Feedback
 
“Jason Gurley is the kind of storyteller that makes you excited to sit down and spend a day reading.”
Ted Kosmatka, author of Prophet of Bones
