Seven year-old Mary's runaway talent for art has become both private sanctuary and wild frontier, a place where she is unrestrained to dream and explore, and put it all down in paint. Her teenage sister is so very opposite; caught in a down-spiral, she is interested only in the means to shut down her mind and shut out just about everything else. Mary does her best to push aside her loneliness, until she befriends two unconventional soulmates. One teaches her to define her own limits, while an other-worldly creature shows her that the limits don't actually exist.
Although Mary has been granted wisdom that reaches far beyond her years, when a confusing neighbor with a dark agenda moves in just doors away, she has no idea how to stop him.
The Sungod's Sister is a tale of friendship and loss, of resignation and faith, all seen through younger eyes. It is a tale of the kind of love that is toxic, and the kind that is held on to no matter what.
