Her mother’s death marked a turning point in Zoe Delighty’s young life. It was as though everything she knew about the world – about life and love – died with her.
Zoe’s imaginative life becomes her strength and eventually her means of escape.
Years later, we meet her again in Europe.
She is living a colourful, even dazzling life. But what is she making of herself? How real is her world? How real are her feelings?
This is a novel about self-discovery, passion for people and for living, and – eventually – about healing. Its themes are timeless and universal. Its ideas and emotional frankness are striking. Its effect is stimulating and deeply moving.
