Queen of the Owls

Queen of the Owls: A Novel Book cover

A chance meeting with a charismatic photographer will forever change Elizabeth's life.

Until she met Richard, Elizabeth's relationship with Georgia O'Keeffe and her little-known Hawaii paintings was purely academic. Now, it feels personal. When Richard reawakens an awareness in Elizabeth that's haunted her since she was a child—the truth that cerebral knowledge will never be enough—Elizabeth takes a step she never imagined, and her life begins to unravel.

Elizabeth must ask herself: How much will she risk to be truly seen and known?
