Consume and write me a note of thanks - this book was A-MA-ZING!
Here is my 5 star review:
Exquisitely crafted and flawlessly rendered...this is nothing short of a masterpiece of modern fiction. If you have not read this book, buy it and begin to read. You know how we all want to be drawn into another world? To be swept away with a masterfully created story?
This is that book. This is a book that will become an instant classic in your mind and library. I have recommended it to everyone I know, professionally and socially.
The interwoven tale blends classical music, an autistic child that no one can reach, a murder mystery, and misunderstood psychic. I refuse to say much more as the book is meant to be savored like a fine wine. I actually slowed down in reading it, knowing the sadness my heart would feel when there were no more pages to read.
Thank you Dr. Kennedy for the best book I've read in years, one that can be held up to all the old classics and proudly displayed as their equal.
Psychic Mira Tejedor possesses unique talents that enable her to find anything and anyone, but now she must find a comatose boy wandering lost inside the labyrinth of his own mind. Thirteen-year-old Anthony Faircloth hasn’t spoken a word in almost a month and with each passing day, his near catatonic state worsens. No doctor, test, or scan can tell Anthony’s distraught mother what has happened to her already troubled son. In desperation, she turns to Mira for answers, hoping her unique abilities might succeed where science has failed.
At their first encounter, Mira is pulled into Anthony’s mind and finds the child’s psyche shattered into the various movements of Modest Mussorgsky’s classical music suite, Pictures at an Exhibition. As she navigates this magical dreamscape drawn from Anthony’s twin loves of Russian composers and classical mythology, Mira must contend with gnomes, troubadours, and witches in her search for the truth behind Anthony’s mysterious malady.
The real world, however, holds its own dangers. The onset of Anthony’s condition coincides with the disappearance of his older brother’s girlfriend, a missing persons case that threatens to tear the city apart. Mira discovers that in order to save Anthony, she will have to catch a murderer who will stop at nothing to keep the secrets contained in Anthony’s unique mind from ever seeing the light.
