From the award-winning author of "The Bellwether Revivals" comes a gorgeous and harrowing work set on a mysterious island, where artists strive to recover their lost gifts - and where nothing is quite as it seems. Situated on a Turkish island, Portmantle might be the strangest, most exclusive artists' colony around. Elspeth "Knell" Conroy is a Scottish painter who has been at Portmantle for a decade. The hermetic world at Portmantle shatters when the 17-year-old Fullerton arrives at the gates, his provenance and talents unknown. As Knell searches for answers, she delves into her own past, and we see the path that led her to this place.

One of those books where the narratives changes up on you...similar to The Crying Game and Gone Girl in that way...kind of examines the question of what makes a story/novel.
