Elementals PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Elementals free pdf In the same delectable format as The Matisse Stories, this collection deals with betrayal and loyalty, quests and longings, loneliness and passion - the mysterious absences at the heart of the fullest lives. A scholar pursues an elusive biographer, stumbling upon buried fragments of distant lives- a woman walks out of her previous existence and encounters an ice-blond stranger from a secretive world- a schoolgirl draws a blood-filled picture of jael- a swimming pool reveals a beauteous monster in its depths. The settings range from the heart of Provence in summer to the cold forests of Scandinavia, form chalk-strewn classrooms to herbscented hillsides, from suburban streets to rocky wilds.
