“At death we are but the memories of our battles, our kindnesses, and our conversations with God . . .”

After serving a harrowing year in an Irish penitentiary for involuntary manslaughter, Sheehan Xavier Donovan, the famous pianist known around the world, finds himself abandoned by his family and living alone. His successful career is over, and life as he knew it is irrevocably changed.

Beautifully imagined, inspiring and deeply emotional, proving the unbreakable strength of the human spirit.

But in a twist of fate, Sheehan receives redemption and a new reason to live . . . A miracle transpires involving his withdrawn neighbor, Colette Aurora Theroux, an eccentric painter who talks to the ghost of Vincent van Gogh–a specter she has created in her mind.

Coal has spurned his friendship until now as she continues to struggle with her past, unable to move on from tragedies of her own. But Sheehan is determined to break her hard outer shell. A tumultuous, passionate love affair soon transpires between the pianist and the painter, forming a seemingly unbreakable bond . . . until the past comes back to haunt them both.

Damaged and dysfunctional, these two broken souls embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing, eventually finding solace in each other by the sea, and in the end, the true meaning of life, love, and God.

Absolutely loved this novel . . . I cried, I laughed, I was on the edge of my seat in certain scenes, then I cried again! But this is NOT a romance novel. It’s a very intense drama, with phenomenal dialog and prolific scenes. It will transport you, move you, proving the power of the human spirit, showing that all people have purpose and meaning. I fell in love with this novel, and I truly do believe each person who reads it will feel the same way.

What a book! I just finished this novel and I’m sad it’s over. Entertaining, emotionally gripping, and enchanting. It’s difficult to put into words just how excellent this novel truly is; there’s so much depth and intense emotion in every single page. I give this novel 5 stars, and I’m excited to read the next book by Kate Birkin and Mark Bornz.
