Overview

A fabulous tale of art, creativity and-betrayal.

Alexander Wainwright, Britain's finest landscape artist, enchants us with visions of the beyond-lying behind the everyday world.

Jonathan Pryde, patron of the arts, offers him a commission to create stained glass windows at his home in Vence in the south of France.

Alex hesitates. He's a painter, not a glass cutter. Jonathan flatters and entices with promises of creative freedom and fame.
Against his better instincts, Alex is lured into Pryde's world and visits his home where the project is to be constructed.

His patron's home is a luxurious, medieval castle. To Alex's surprise, many elderly, once famous, writers and scientists live there in great comfort under Pryde's care. They insist they are free to leave but never do. Visions of the beyond have ravaged their minds.

Impressed by Pryde's intelligence and taste, Alex believes he has found a true kindred spirit. Yet, underneath, he glimpses a sinister aspect to the man. As he wrestles with this foreboding, his fear of betrayal deepens.

A bunker at the foot of the garden protects Pryde's secrets. Struggling with his own creative visions, Alex is faced with the question-How can the very best and worst of mankind thrive in one man's breast?

    Another great novel by Mary Martin

    I highly recommend that you read this book, the second in her trilogy surrounding her main character, the artist, Alexander Wainwright. You need not read the first to enjoy this one, but you if you do, you won't be disappointed. Ms Martin continues to explore the matter of genius and what influences the creation of remarkable aesthetic beauty. Does it come from the influence of visions, the inspiration of muses or other sources? She carries us along on a tightrope in this regard, keeping us balanced but unsure. While doing so, we are caught up in the mystery surrounding her new character, Jonathan Pryde and a host of very interesting supporting characters that he has gathered at his villa in Vence. His "fate" is not made clear until a remarkable ending. I look forward to the third installment of the trilogy.
