Jolene Iolas, a student in upstate New York, encounters Martin Sloane's work while visiting a Toronto gallery. Flush with the confidence of youth, she strikes up a correspondence with the older artist, and eventually they become lovers.

And then, without warning, without a word, he vanishes. There is no hint of his fate, no chain of cause and effect to be followed. Ten years pass, and Jolene learns to stop trying to make sense of what has happened to her. But before she can fully return to life, the opportunity to confront her ghost arises. Word comes that someone named Sloane has been exhibiting artworks identical to Martin's in Irish galleries.

Seamlessly crafted and beautifully written, Martin Sloane evokes the mysteries of love and art, the weight of history, and what it means to bear memory for the missing and the dead.

Not really to my taste but a pleasant enough read.

I love the book and its haunting sense of melancholy. I like the sad and flawed characters. I do not want to give anything away, since it is much better to read without knowing. But I want to say that I like the ending.

Thanks for this book, it does look like something I will enjoy.

I'm still looking for the stamps :) haha, you said I should carefully remove the cover sheet. But I think I've peeled of everything that was removable from the envelope.

*nevermind* I peeled everything off another envelope from you and found them :) So many parcels piled up during my holidays.
