THE GIRL WHO CRIES COLOURS by Raven Kennedy
This story has it all, and it's all in magnificent technicolour. It's a story that traces over a decade of the lives of Willow and David. A perfectly matched set of misfits who are each other's everything, each other's perfect balance. This pair meet as lonely children both of whom want nothing more in the world other than a single friend. What they find in each other is so much more.
He is an artist, a childhood savant and she becomes his most powerful muse. All the pain in the world is felt by both and turned into something wonderful... Until the day it isn't.
This is a story that will make you cry. Oh my god did I cry. But in crying the joy and anger and pain and sorrow that is laced throughout David and Willows lives I will never cry the magnificent rainbow that this story truly deserves.
Do yourself a favour, lock yourself away for a weekend with your favourite drink and snacks and prepare to feel all the colours that love and pain creates. Oh if only our feelings were so easily read and recognised as the rainbow that this book will inspire.
So cry yourself a rainbow and dream of a world where a girl can cry colours before returning to the grey that is our mortal reader existence once we emerge from these pages.
David had a gift. Willow had a secret.
At first, it was a whispered revelation in the dark. It was paint smeared on canvas. It was color staining a cheek. He was the painter, and she was his muse who carried a storm of painful colors in her eyes.
David loved her from the start. He knew Willow was supposed to be his. But the world had other ideas. Childhood ended. Innocent love grew bitter. Secrets were spilled, and death came knocking.
Life will try to tear them apart, until all that’s left is a world gone gray. They’ll have to fight to get back what they lost.
...If they can.
