When young Emily Quinn, accused of the brutal murder of her father, sits down with a world-famous psychiatrist, she has no idea she is walking into a frightening and twisted world…her own.
PAGES IN THE WIND is a fast-paced, mainstream novel set in San Francisco during the 1960s. The novel weaves through the tortured life of a young girl hindered by family secrets, the unexplained death of a twin sister, severe abuse, a disconnected self-image, and a peculiar attachment to an old Bloomingdales box filled with her drawings. She is driven to live through her art, personifying the imaginary girls she sketches. Following the murder of her father, she works with an aging renowned psychiatrist who quickly grows sympathetic to Emily and her disturbing childhood, and becomes obsessed with unlocking the reason for her need to embody the fictional girls she creates. The doctor and patient develop a warm and abiding partnership, sifting through unexpected revelations and troubling events culminating in a shocking revelation that neither saw coming.
The mental health professionals have recognized the book as a must-read for anyone interested in human emotions and how someone can survive under seemingly impossible conditions. But PAGES IN THE WIND is no textbook—it is a psychological thriller that will keep you riveted, invested in the characters, and wondering what will happen next.
