The book

Sophie Marks’ path to artistic and personal fulfillment takes her from World War II England to post-war Paris and the Italian countryside of Umbria, where she learns that creativity alone is not enough to sustain a rewarding life. She leaves Europe in 1967 and spends the next two decades in the American Southwest. Acclaimed at last as an artist, she returns to England to confront the hidden memories of her childhood and to test the possibilities of a renewed love, a passion ripened by maturity. A beautifully realized saga of a complex, gifted woman, Broken Colors is a rich story, deeply affecting and wise.
