After Meredith''s girlfriend commits suicide, she abandons art school and goes home to Washington, D.C., intending to kill herself, but a chance street encounter leads her to create a painting that acts as a magical passage through which the young, 19th-century French poet Arthur Rimbaud emerges, and both their lives are changed.
From the Publisher:
When her girlfriend commits suicide, Meredith, a 17-year-old aspiring artist, is devastated and plans to seek the same fate, but when she stumbles on a magical wall painting that can transport people through time, her life is forever changed when she meets an inspiring young artist from a different era.
Annotation:
Two teenagers cross the decades and discover just how kindred their spirits are in this magical young adult novel by the author of ILLYRIA. In the 20th-century, it's 1978 and Merle finds herself at sea in a fancy art school after a childhood spent in Appalachian poverty. At the same time, in 1870, 16-year-old Arthur Rimbaud is having the experiences that will form his poetic voice. When the two meet each other through a mystical connection, they transform one another's artistic lives.

Praise

"Suffused with powerful images of light, this intensely lyrical portrait of two androgynous young artists who magically traverse a century to briefly escape their equally disturbing worlds expands the themes of artistic isolation and passion Hand first introduced in ILLYYRIA...An impressive blend of biography and magical realism."
