Eleanor is Canadian, born in Guyana, South America with West African ancestry. She is keenly interested in her cultural and historical heritage, in young women's empowerment and in Black women's health. Eleanor lives in Toronto with her husband. The Wisdom of Rain is her first novel. The Wisdom of Rain is a sweeping tale of tragedy, loss, and inhumanity, but it is also a story of courage, love, and spirituality. It shows how these qualities can transcend and defeat servitude and suffering in the most trying circumstances. It is a novel that treasures and restores the past, breathing life into a forgotten time and place and revealing its hidden pathways to the present.
