Cynthia Newberry Martin

The Art of Her Life is a story about the power of art. Emily, a single parent with two young daughters, pushes away the man she loves in order to guard her time to herself. When tragedy strikes, she turns to her lifelong love of art and to Henri Matisse, his words and his paintings, for answers. Perhaps art will provide a doorway through which Emily will find herself—as well as love—before it's too late.
