Avalon is no ordinary artist. Her gift is to paint pictures of events before they happen; some of them portray potentially bad consequences. When her best friend, Stephanie, ends up in a coma after a tragic accident, Avalon blames herself and asks the universe to take this gift away. What happened as a result of her request still astounds me. Brodey is masterful in weaving a fascinating web of otherworldly intrigue regarding her characters and their gifts. Although I expected to feel the sadness of friends and family because of Stephanie’s coma, other emotions were at play within me as I read. The author’s infusion of a tone of love and grace in these scenes was a special experience.
There is nothing that happens in this story that is haphazard. Brodey was superb in creating her scenes; throughout my read, my thirst for some answers to the mystery was assuaged just enough. At the same time, she tantalized my curiosity by tossing into scenes a foreshadowing of future potentialities. I resonated with the mature views presented by the author on vital issues—often, I was nodding my head and reveling aloud. Typically when reading, I like to figure out what might happen next, but with this story, it was more satisfying to let the mystery unravel at the pace set by the author.
I loved the pace of discovery that Brodey takes in revealing more of Stephanie’s character. In her own right, Stephanie is no ordinary artist either, and more than just a geek about poetry or an avid believer in the concept of soulmates. Her passion to communicate the reality of there being a metaphysical aspect in this world continued even while she was in a coma. An unexpected gem that enhanced the storyline is the inclusion of poetry from several well-known poets, including one of my favorites, Emily Dickinson. I was extraordinarily impressed by the author’s ability to interweave specific poems so artfully into the storyline.
For me, the dominant theme that wraps around all the others is communication. The swirl of interplay between the characters is intricately dynamic. Some of my favorite characters from book two show up and add an exhilarating level of intrigue to the story. In DRAWN APART, Brodey takes interpersonal communication to another level, a fascinating one. She introduces metaphysical themes and is exceptional in blending the concepts of past lives, soulmates, and mental telepathy into the story. There were moments when I paused to reflect, to consider the characters’ views in relation to my own. The perspectives presented in DRAWN APART will stay with me for a long time. This book is special, one that I’ll reread again.
The covers of books has always been a factor for me in choosing novels to read. The cover for DRAWN APART is perfect for the story—enticingly mysterious in a refreshing way.
A super book, with lots of twists and arcs to the story. A delightful read for those times you want to escape from it all.
