Publisher's Summary

One insecure perfectionist. One guilt-ridden artist. One child-woman who talks to peacocks. A trio of complex heroines on separate journeys toward a single intertwined truth.

Imagine living exclusively for others and waking up one day with a chance to start over. The terrifying new beginning reeks of abandonment and betrayal. The choice for Seattle resident Monica lingers between now and then...them and her.

Izabel's idyllic existence on Orcas Island is turned upside down during the birth of a friend's child. Suddenly, pain rips through her own body, and life as she knows it shifts, hinting at a forgotten past and propelling her toward an uncertain future.

On another island, young Daisy awakens surrounded by infinite shades of blue. Is she dreaming or has she stepped through the portal into a fantastical land where animals spout philosophy, and a gruesome monster plots her destruction?

Blue is a subtle psychological mind-bender where each heroine is her own worst enemy. Eccentric. Loveable. Unforgettable.

Perplexing but nice

I was given this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This story was perplexing in the beginning. I kept trying to wrap my head around it but as it progressed it got to be more entertaining. Imagine a time that you don't remember until suddenly you do and it is so different from what you have been lead to believe. As you journey to your real reality, you discover that what you actually thought to be true is so much better. This was a nice journey into a different world and the narrator helped create the emotions very well. Good job.

Adventurous and strangely moving

This is definitely one of the strangest books I have ever read, but that is not a bad thing. It is adventurous to say the least. Strangely moving. Strongly gripping. Touches deeply on so many levels. It’s a bit hard to explain really. It is quite memorable, one you won’t soon forget.

I listened to the audible version, which was good. Narrator,.Jennifer Swanepoel, did a great job. I think I might also like to read it in print for myself. It is a book that almost demands to be read more than once.

Slow start

This was a slow start but if you can hold on until about halfway through it's so much better. The story is hard to follow so you must give it your full concentration.

Slow burner but compelling read

I enjoyed this book, more so into the second half when the ahhh, aha moments were kicking in. It starts out quite ethereal, psychedelic and odd... and I did wonder what on earth I'd got myself into for a while. But it settles into three distinct storylines (two 'normal', just the one psychedelic) involving three different women. It feels there must have to be a connection between them somehow but that's really not clear so we have to just get immersed in each of their separate existences.
The writing is great, the story eventually drew me in and made for compelling reading. Would definitely recommend it but you must keep going through the beginning, it is worth it.
