Painted Skies is one of my all time favorite books! Sue Simonich leads the reader through an adventure of a lifetime through such wonderful description I felt I was part of the story. If you enjoy Barbara Kingsolver and Sena Jeter Naslund, read this book. I savored every minute and didn't want to be finished. Looking forward to more from this author. 


This tale has a more twists and turns than the beautiful canyons she describes. The book is exceptionally written. I know you will find that the author's photo like narration will illuminate vivid pictures in your mind. The story is marvelous in a number of areas regarding the human spirit, emotion and the ethereal ties that we all experience at one time or another. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes a good story that leaves you with warmth and a little ponderous about those things we know and yet cannot see. You will not be disappointed.

From the Back Cover

Nova Denver's quiet academic life was shattered by the death of her mother, the appearance of a posthumous letter, and surprising personal secrets. Retreating to the family cabin high in the Uintah wilderness, she seeks answers to a forty-year old mystery. Hours after her return, disturbing intrusions prompt her to begin tracing connections back to England, where four decades of secrets are finally revealed. Never did she expect the truth to be so convoluted, so personal and life changing, but soon discovers, "Love is the final end of the world's history, the Amen of the Universe."

This is a wonderful debut novel by author Sue Simonich. With an original plot, twisting and turning until you don't know who to trust, she weaves into your senses with original use of words.
I felt like I was tagging along after Nova in her quest to find family, and right there with her, experiencing all the sensations and sights. The questions in my mind all along were very nicely wrapped up and explained in a great ending.
Thanks for the good read!!

Do you love a good mystery? Are you in to genealogy? This book has it all and keeps you wanting to know what happens next. The book has large text which makes it easy on the eyes, which is good because I have a terrible time with small print. You will enjoy the story immensely.

As others have mentioned, this tale has a more twists and turns than the beautiful canyons she describes. The book is exceptionally written and having lived in and around Salt Lake City, I can testify to the accuracy of the depictions regarding the surrounding mountains. I know you will find that the authors photo like narration will illuminate a vivid picture in your mind. The story is marvelous in a number of areas regarding the human spirit and emotion. I also love the ethereal ties that we all experience at one time or another. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes a good story that leaves you with warmth and a little ponderous about those things we know and yet cannot see. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to more stories from the author. BOBO
