Changing Sky by Kathryn Callan Book PDF Summary
Changing Sky is a magical tale of love and adventure with intricately interwoven stories about Julia, an artist; Andrew, her son; and Maggie, Julia's agent. Julia, a landscape painter in her late forties, is at an impasse with her art: it has become like painting by numbers for her. She longs to produce a different kind of art. Her son, Andrew, is eighteen. Discontentment envelops him. What is the point of being lonely among other people, he wonders? It's worse than being lonely by yourself. That summer, Andrew embarks on a voyage through which he meets unusual people in a mystical land. He is told he will be part of a coming change and will plant the seeds of new ideas. Julia does not yet realize he is gone and begins to paint scenes from his excursions-scenes that are different from anything she has ever created before. Thirtysomething Maggie who is recently divorced, is adjusting to her new single life. When she shows Julia's paintings to others, then the real magic begins, drawing Julia, Andrew, and Maggie into fascinating journeys of self-discovery.
