A Lighter Shade of Gray
472 pages, available in paperback and Kindle editions
What does it feel like to stare into the face of madness? Or to anticipate your own? Would you drive away your only love? Could you pretend it didn't matter? How far would you go to protect a friend, or to avenge a death?
My mother always told me that there was a fine line between genius and madness. Also creativity, which seems to fit right in there with both of them.
Devon Pearse weaves a poetic novel with one foot in lyrical dreamscape and one in harsh reality. She explores loneliness and regret, fear and self-loathing, love, secrets, betrayal, friendship, family, and mental illness. Oh, and did I mention the elements of mystery? How about that it is semi-autobiographical?
A Lighter Shade of Gray is a remarkable effort from a talented writer who isn't afraid to bare her soul.
