AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Silas is haunted by the vision of a luminous, surreal garden on the outskirts of Port Tremaine, a desolate country town. In this garden lives Constance, as beautiful as the morning and as blind as the night. They say Constance can see the truth at the heart of things to which others are blind - but where does truth begin and blindness end?

'When Silas leaves Port Tremaine, he is unable to live with his memories of the garden and unable to make sense of his fractured life. He goes to Daniel for healing, but he is not the only one who needs to be healed. As Silas learns to come to terms with what he saw and what he refuses to see, Daniel, too, begins to recognise his own habitual blindness and learns to open his eyes to the truths about his own past.'
