The Library of Light and Shadow
Synopsis | Excerpt | Praise

In this riveting and richly drawn novel a talented young artist flees New York for the South of France after one of her scandalous drawings reveals a dark secret — and triggers a terrible tragedy.

Delphine Duplessi sees more than most. At a time in her career when she could easily be unknown and penniless, like so many of her classmates from L'École des Beaux Arts, in America she has gained notoriety for her stunning "shadow portraits" that frequently expose her subjects' most scandalous secrets. Trapped in an ancient chateau where hidden knowledge lurks in the shadows, Delphine questions everything and everyone she loves the most — her art, her magick, her family, and Mathieu — in an effort to accept them as the gifts they are. Only there can she shed her fear of loving and living with her eyes wide open.
