“A certain melancholy has been brooding over me this fortnight. I date it from Katherine’s death. Yes. Go on writing of course: but into emptiness. There’s no competitor.” —Virginia Woolf
The emotional intensity of this portrait is riveting. It captures the fear, loneliness and hope of a master storyteller who risks anything in her urgent pursuit to cure her tuberculosis and heal her withered soul.
“Thoroughly researched, FitzPatrick has recreated the life of Katherine Mansfield with all her troubles, failures, successes, and wildness.” —Mirella Patzer, History and Women
“A brilliant, beautifully written novel . . .” —Mel Ulm, The Reading Life
“A beautifully crafted novel which will move and inspire you.” —Misha, Top Amazon Reviewer
