One from the Sea

One from the Sea - Amanda Fieldsend I won this in a Goodreads giveaway.

Beautiful poetic prose. A story of heartbreak, of falling, and then of dance, redemption, rising. Of sexuality and love. "Dance is the redeemer of the body." Mostly it's the story of Anna, who needs to heal from her breakup. And find her peace, convince herself that she can love. But there are several other strands -- the child thrown from the cliff that finds flight, in metaphor with Anna. And Mary, mother Mary and Mary Magdalene and Mary who will eventually come into Anna's life.

It was a beautiful work of impressionistic art, but it didn't quite gel all the way for me. Enjoyable and a good read, but it didn't quite pop. I would be interested to see what comes from this author in the future.
