Mary, a strong proponent of free speech, has allowed Alexander Wainwright, Rinaldo and Jonathan Pryde, his antagonists, to express themselves freely and openly on her blog. But why should an author grant her characters such leeway? When asked, Mary said, “I see these fascinating characters as very real people, better than imaginary friends. Why shouldn’t they have the chance to speak up? I’m sure they will surprise everyone—especially me.”
The Drawing Lesson is the first in the trilogy, in which Alexander Wainwright creates stunning visions of worlds beyond in his landscape paintings. He must deal with his nemesis, Rinaldo, a conceptual artist, who is consumed with jealousy. From London to Venice and then Toronto to New York, where his nemesis awaits him, Alex is in search of his muse.
Now in The Fate of Pryde, Alexander is caught in a fabulous world of creativity and—betrayal. Jonathan Pryde, wealthy patron of the arts, proposes Alex create stained glass windows at his castle in the south of France. Alex hesitates. But Jonathan lures him into his dark world with promises of creative freedom and fame.
At this luxurious castle, Alex finds many elderly, but forgotten writers and philosophers who insist they are free to leave, but never do. Because of his patron’s intelligence and kindness, Alex believes he is a kindred spirit. But underneath, he knows something is very wrong. His sense of possible 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?
