With her third book Jo Ann Brown-Scott offers a fresh, energetic novel about the life-long evolution of a contemporary woman artist. In her characteristically vivid, painterly voice, at times both irreverent and profound, Brown-Scott composes the story of a maverick, free-spirited woman, awarded with creative DNA and privilege at birth yet scarred with a childhood of loss and family dysfunction. Fueled with these ideal circumstances for artistic development, the heroine Annie breaks loose to become the Bohemian abstract artist she was born to be.
During her artistic maturation, flawed relationships with three men, a salesman, a contrarian and a Swede bring seemingly random disorder and chaos. Faced with complicated challenges Annie questions randomness; can life’s moments of perfect timing be attributed to mere coincidental chance? Do we have real choices, or is a life already written in the stars as karmic retribution or reward for past lives?
After Annie is brought to her knees with adversity the universe presents her with an option that hints at both restoration and renewal. They say that karma is a bitch, but more often it is just karma. When it does intervene, arriving in the nick of time to level the playing field, it comes bearing gifts for a gutsy, risk-taking woman, many times burned; a chance and a choice that just might balance the scales and enable Annie to grasp reward in the final chapter of her life. If she decides to take one more leap of faith, the results could be astounding. Will she choose wisely? Was this always her destiny?
