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." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Editors Note 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.
