Coming Soon: SLEEPING EMBERS OF AN ORDINARY MIND by Anne Charnock

Did you know that Anne’s novel A Calculated Life was nominated for a PKD Award? So, you’ll want to check that out, and look forward to Sleeping Embers of an Ordinary Mind, out in December. More info below!

More about the book (larger cover follows):

History is story telling. But some stories remain untold.

In fifteenth-century Italy, Paolo Uccello recognizes the artistic talent of his young daughter, Antonia, and teaches her how to create a masterpiece. The girl composes a painting of her mother and inadvertently sparks an enduring mystery.

In the present day, a copyist painter receives a commission from a wealthy Chinese businessman to duplicate a Paolo Uccello painting. Together, the painter and his teenage daughter visit China, and in doing so they begin their escape from a tragic family past.

In the twenty-second century, a painting is discovered that’s rumored to be the work of Paolo Uccello’s daughter. This reawakens an art historian’s dream of elevating Antonia Uccello, an artist ignored by history because of her gender.

Stories untold. Secrets uncovered. But maybe some mysteries should remain shrouded.
