This is a large print edition ....Lucas Cameron is a very successful New York City theater director. Growing up with his grandmother, the renowned actress Constance Bernhardt, he was instilled with a deep love and insightful understanding of the stage. While working on a new play, he learns that Constance has died, and he returns to her villa in Italy to settle her affairs. There he discovers letters written to Constance by her friend and acting protege, Jessica Fontaine, which he starts reading one quiet evening to amuse himself. Captivated by the young woman's outlook on life, he continues to read, discovering that her career is abruptly ended when she suffered grave physical injuries in a train accident and leads a new and very secluded life on an island off the coast of Seattle. Deeply affected by her letters, Lucas realizes that he wants to meet this woman and discover why she has isolated herself not only from the acting arena but apparently from the world in general. Michael's (Tangled Web, LJ 11/15/94) novel tells a gently felt story with a surprising amount of suspense. Although probably set to be hyped by its publisher as "woman's fiction," this is really a thought-provoking character study of two very complicated individuals trying to come to grips with each other and the choices they have made in their lives. A sure winner for Michaels fans and a wonderful choice to introduce new readers to her work.
