Summary
"Caught in an over-vivid world because of her synaesthesia (feelings are experienced as colors), Kitty feels haunted by her "child that never was." As children all around become emblems of hope, longing, and grief, she begins to understand the reasons for her shaky sense of self. What family mystery makes her four brothers so vague about her mother's life, who died when she was three? Why does Dad splash paint on canvas rather than answer his daughter's questions? On the edges of her dreams, Kitty glimpses the kaleidoscope van that took her sister Dinah away - is it a link to her indistinct childhood?"--Jacket
Summary
Emotionally stalled after losing her mother and suffering a miscarriage, childlike Kitty observes her world through a series of high and low moods, struggles to uncover childhood secrets, and finds the truth challenging her ability to maintain her tenuous hold on reality. A first novel. Reprint. 15,000 first printing
