"This poignant novel is about children and parents, hurt and healing, mystery and revelation. The appealing, innocent voice of 10-year-old Maddie tells the family story - of her mother Lana and father Leo, her older sister Elena and younger brother Harry, and of others entangled in the strange web of love and lies that painfully affects them all." "It is 1967 when Maddie and her family move from Detroit to upstate New York - to the promise of a happier life. It is to be a fresh start, especially for Lana, whose nerves are at the snapping point and whose unnamed illness holds dominion over the family. And for Leo, whose talents as a pianist and composer have been stifled for reasons Maddie cannot comprehend. But from whatever demons Lana and Leo have been fleeing, they find no escape." "Through Maddie's eyes the darkened past emerges into a startling light as she fits together jigsaw pieces of her parents' inadvertent disclosures, revealing a labyrinth of secrets that go beyond her wildest imaginings. Stunning revelations wreak havoc not only on Maddie's parents but on her sister and brother, and inevitably, herself. All are profoundly affected, all are irrevocably changed." "The fresh voice of Maddie, with her mingled confusions and amazingly perceptive views of grown-up affairs, is superbly crafted with both spellbinding power and delicate sensitivity. With Where Blue Begins, Janice Deaner has written an astonishing vivid tale that reminds us of how little we know about those we love and how costly the truth can be."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
