Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2015
Blue Sun, Yellow Sky is a simultaneously heartbreaking and inspirational story about one artist's journey from painter to blind photographer. Available now on Kindle and in paperback March 11, 2015, Hoang's debut novel is contemporary upmarket women's fiction with a touch of romance.
Hailed as “one of the best technical painters of our time” by an L.A. Times critic, 27 year-old, Aubrey Johnson's work is finally gaining traction. But as she weaves through what should be a celebration of her art, a single nagging echo of her doctor’s words refuses to stay silent—there is no cure. What does it mean to be a blind artist? Better yet, does Aubrey even want to be an artist if she can't see?
So begins her quest. Traveling on a one-way ticket around the world with childhood friend Jeff Anderson, Aubrey is in complete denial. But a blindfolded game of tasting foreign foods in China forces her to confront the reality of her situation.
In this adult coming of age story, Aubrey struggles to accept her crippling disability and what she perceives as the loss of her independence. But on her journey she finds a deeper understanding of herself and her life--sometimes fragmented and complex, but always with humbling honesty.
