The Girl in the Green Glass Mirror
Catherine and John meet after lives of enormous stress and challenge, and forge a relationship based on their mutual love of art. When John reveals an extraordinary link to the Victorian artist Richard Dadd, they are conflicted over their future. Richard Dadd was a tortured character who suffered from schizophrenia, and his paintings reflect his inward-turning obsession with curious detail. The title of the book is taken from his painting The Fairy Feller’s Master Stroke, in which a strange woman holds a mirror half turned towards the viewer. This book is a haunting romance that also has an underlying threat.
