Lost And Found In Prague

The story begins early Good Friday morning in a small church in Prague with an unexplained event that will eventually draw three strangers together.

Dana Pierson, an American journalist, has returned to the city where twenty years earlier she’d participated in a revolution with her cousin Caroline who now makes Prague her home. When Caroline asks Dana to investigate and determine what took place in the church, she finds herself working with a pompous, aging Italian priest and a Czech detective, whose honesty she questions. As they set out to solve the puzzle, the trio becomes caught up in a complicated web of murder, miracles, faith and politics, forcing Dana to bring up memories of her long-ago visit, even as she faces the reality of a recent loss.

Evel Knievel Jumps the Snake River Canyon...and Other Stories Close to Home

When ten-year-old Pick Patterson finds himself stuck with his bossy Grandma Grace and his unemployed, easygoing Uncle Buddy in Twin Falls, he thinks he's in for a boring summer in a hick town in the middle of the desert in Idaho. But when Evel Knievel announces he’ll jump the Snake River Canyon just north of town, everything changes.

In the novella and short story collection, Kelly Jones departs from the settings of her earlier novels—Paris, Florence, and Munich—and writes of ordinary people in towns much like where she grew up.

The Woman Who Heard Color

Lauren O'Farrell, an "art detective," has made it her mission to retrieve invaluable works stolen by the Nazis during the darkest days of World War II. Lauren's dogged quest to learn more about the activities of a woman art dealer in Munich leads her to eighty-two-year-old Isabella Fletcher, who Lauren believes is the woman's daughter.

The wealthy Isabella lives alone in a luxurious Manhattan apartment, surrounded by art, her life darkened by the shadow of a terrible secret-that years ago her mother was rumored to have collaborated with the Nazis, assisting in a museum cleansing of "Modern Art," condemned by Hitler.

As Isabella gradually reveals her mother's story, Lauren learns that the truth is much more complicated than she had imagined.

Based on historical events, set against a backdrop of sweeping museum purges, the warehousing of thousands of paintings in Berlin, and an auction in Lucerne on the eve of World War II, the story is ultimately one of a woman's belief in artistic freedom, her love for family, and her struggle to survive.

The Lost Madonna

When an old friend, now the Dean of an American university program in Florence, Italy, calls with an invitation to teach art history for a semester, Suzanne Cunningham is both hesitant and excited. In the sixties, as a young woman backpacking in Europe with a girlfriend, she had arrived in Florence and the following day found herself caught up in a devastating flood as it swept through the city. She stayed to help with the rescue and restoration of priceless Renaissance art, and also became involved with a young Italian restorer. The affair did not end well, and she has not returned to Florence in over thirty years.

Suzanne decides to accept the position. While preparing for a class she comes across an article featuring a fifteenth-century painting claimed to have been lost in the flood. She knows the painting was saved, because she had assisted in the restoration. She returns to Italy and begins a search for the lost painting as well as the man she has never forgotten.

The Seventh Unicorn

Alexandra Pellier is a young widow and mother of a six-year-old daughter. As a curator for the Cluny Museum in Paris, she is invited to a convent south of Lyon to examine items dating back to the convent's founding in the thirteenth century. The nuns of Sainte Blandine wish to dispose of their possessions before a forced move to a retirement convent. During her brief visit, Alex finds nothing of interest to her museum, but comes across an ancient poem that she initially dismisses as an insignificant and poorly written little verse.

On a return trip she discovers a set of drawings and realizes that, along with the poem, they suggest the startling possibility of an additional tapestry in the famous six-piece set The Lady and the Unicorn displayed in the Cluny. A journey begins as details in the poem and drawings reveal a forbidden medieval love affair and offer clues that might lead to the hidden tapestry. When Jake Bowman, a man from Alex's past, returns to Paris and becomes involved in her search, she is forced to look within herself and examine her own capacity for love.
