What if truth had color?
A Novel About Dreams, Growth, & Forgiveness.
For Sarah Vines, truth is not black and white. She has synesthesia, a condition that creates the marriage of unrelated sensations. For Sarah, words have tastes with seeping flavors and colors she can touch. Odors evoke shapes and textures. Just thinking of her missing brother evokes a torrential rain, a God-sized pitcher of frigid water pouring over her, just like the cloudburst on the day he disappeared. The visions are even worse-the black veil that shifts ever so slightly in the air and transforms into a chiffon dress fluttering in the wind ... and a woman hanging from a tree. Hidden in her family's abandoned farm buildings are decisions you can't take back and want to bury as deep as the soil allows. Sarah's merged senses, dream-like visions, and uncanny intuition guide her search for the truth, opening a Pandora's Box of secrets. The truth, a spectrum of light, guides Sarah to follow her dreams and pursue the path of forgiveness.
