It is fifteen years after the remarkable events of Oblivion’s Whisper, and famed artist Gabriel Mullaney finds himself in an entirely new and astonishing world. As a Redolent Wind gently pushes them this way and that, it is Gabe’s task to describe the inter-twining lives of both his lovely niece Saoirse, now a writer, and his one-time apprentice Peter, a talented landscape painter in his own right. Many readers of Oblivion’s Whisper, wanting more of their specific stories, asked for this sequel, having fallen in love with these varied and enthralling characters.
