Product description

Review

"Will delight readers searching for a story with meaning, character, and drama."--Bookreporter

Richly atmospheric, gorgeously written, and filled with characters so real they breathe on the page...as luminous as a perfect photograph shimmering with true light.--Caroline Leavitt, author of Girls In Trouble and Pictures of You

"An engaging and compassionate portrait of an artist learning to embrace the full potential of her power. Meg Waite Clayton writes with a photographer's precision, clarity, and care."--A. Manette Ansay, author of Good Things I Wish You

"The Language of Light shines on, a wonderfully knowing action photograph that has emerged from the darkroom as words."--Baltimore Sun

The combination of interesting characters, an intriguing, ever-changing plot, and the elements of photography so beautifully captured in this novel, allow me to share that this novel is well recommended. --Joseph's Reviews
