Overview

Burned out from work and a recent breakup, Andie Branson, a 38-year-old commercial artist in a conservative town in the American South, has a shocking and unexpected religious experience, kundalini rising, the physical manifestation of tantric enlightenment.

Andie's struggle to regain control of her mind and body is complicated by a too close connection with her glamorous world-wandering parents, especially her magnetically attractive father, and by an assignment working closely with a bigoted U.S. senator, the man who, for her, personifies evil. Her story ranges from the elegant little golf town of Pinehurst, North Carolina, to the raucous and shadowy byways of pre-Katrina New Orleans, with pauses in India, Ecuador, and other exotic locations. Andie finds her redemption finally through ecstatic religious ritual, the mysterious healing properties of water, and by claiming and steering the power that has erupted within her.

    When Peggy Payne offered a copy of her newest novel  "Cobal

    When Peggy Payne offered a copy of her newest novel  "Cobalt Blue"  in exchange for a review, I was happy to oblige. Having read her former book  "Sister India", I knew it would be a great story with engrossing subject matter.  I was not at all disappointed.




    Cobalt Blue's main character is Andie, a 38 year-old artist who is stagnating in her art and her life, until she has a spiritual experience. Her kundalini rises, and gets stuck for a while in her nether regions. Andie is previously unaccustomed to feeling constant sexual excitement, but she soon learns how if affects her body - and her mind. 




    Caught in a web of sexually predatory feelings, she travels from her small town of Pinehurst, NC to the eastern shores of North Carolina, where she beds  (for money)  the first man she meets, and is surprised and appalled at her actions. 




    Read the book, and discover how a trip to  pre-Katrina New Orleans helps Andie channel her desires and become the mistress of her body and mind, retrieving her self-respect and pride in the process.
