Isabel's Daughter A Novel characters Ì eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB From the author of Bread Alone comes an intimate tale of a woman given up at birth piecing together her mother's identityAfter a childhood spent in an institution and a series of foster homes Avery James has trained herself not to wonder about the mother who gave her up But her safe predictable life changes one night at a party in the home of a wealthy Santa Fe art dealer when she stumbles upon the portrait of a woman who is the mirror image of herselfAvery has found her mother. I don t usually like books about teenagers but I found myself so captivated by this book that I read right through these years and found myself captivated The author just drew me in and I found it a hard book to put down I liked the description of this area of the country and discussions about where fabric art fits into the general scheme of the art world I worried it could have been a depressing book about losses but instead found it a book about surviving losses even surviving the knowledge that the main character might be her own worst enemy knows it struggles with it and only wins sometimes with the tantalizing promise that she might yet dare to come to experience love
