-- Known worldwide by devoted Net readers of her high-quality fiction, the author's earlier novel, The Water Bearer, brought thousands of new readers to her site. Her remarkable skill at producing a broad range of dissimilar stories of powerful human relationships and perilous social commitments, have yielded richly imaginative and unforgettable narratives. In Ice-Brook Violet, a sophisticated, well-educated but emotionally damaged woman returns to her heritage farm, after years, devoted to an increasingly violent world. It is late autumn and the harsh onset of winter accompanies startling encounters with other sojourners and with disturbing revelations hidden from her childhood. Violent and impassioned new relationships form, even as she works at allaying her unstable condition. Her colleagues expect her return to work after a reasonable period of healing, and a longtime British woman-friend and co-worker comes to retrieve her. More and more deeply involved with others on her beautiful farm, she agonizes over how to finish her life.
