Talia, an eccentric artist, lives in the quaint town of Corrales, New Mexico with her partner, Renie. For the past twenty years, on December 15th Talia has lit a candle to mark the day she had to leave California to start a new life and leave behind her five year old daughter, Sophie. Through a quirk of fate, Talia is catapulted into an unfolding saga that compels her to revisit her unconventional past, revealing truths that change the lives of everyone involved.
This provocative, emotionally charged novel delves into the inner worlds of people grappling with painful paradoxes of life, and like the walking fish, they must find ways to adapt in order to survive.
“I savored the complex and surprising inter-relationships of these families, each unusual (but believable), as the characters, risking the dangers of change and the necessity of testing experiences, move out of their native elements to find ultimately satisfying resolutions where doors are open into the new and unfamiliar.”
- Phyllis Hoge Thompson, poet, and author of The Painted Clock: Memoirs Of A New Mexico Ghost Town Bride.
“Joanne Bodin’s tale of a woman reinventing herself and taking charge of her life is a balm for the soul.”
- Sean Murphy, author of The Hope Valley Hubcap King and The Time of New Weather. www.murphyzen.com.
