Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Art teacher Mira Fenn’s life was curiously lacking in color until the day she learned of a mysterious inheritance from her birthmother--a long-abandoned house in New Mexico. Dim childhood memories begin to brighten in Mira’s mind--her colorfully exotic mother, the curiously silent women who were her mother’s servants.

Returning to New Mexico, Mira discovers that the house is a faded thing, looked after by the charismatic Domingo Navidad. But when Mira dreams of her childhood home, it is a riot of color--and she and Domingo soon set to work to bring her dreams to life.

Color brings more than just an old house back to life. The bright paint Mira applies to wood and plaster seems to reach into her soul, to awaken powers trapped in a decades-long slumber. The silent women reappear, carrying with them a great secret. Convinced her mother is still alive, Mira searches for her, journeying through a sea of light and color to a time and place far from her own.

Who and what she finds there will alter her world forever.

Synopsis:

A stand-alone contemporary fantasy from the popular author of Through Wolf's Eyes and its sequels

Synopsis:

Shot through with magic and the atmosphere of the Southwest, this stand-alone contemporary fantasy has all the storytelling vigor of Lindskold's popular Firekeeper series, as it tells the tale of a woman determined to know the truth about her heritage.
