Synopsis: Myla and Pru Wolfe blazed a luminous path through childhood, encouraged by their brilliant professor father to follow their bliss. Separated by 5, Myla and Pru bonded intensely in their shared sense of loss, their unquenchable thirst for knowledge and their status as favorite subjects for family friend and photographer Ruth Handel. For a time, Ruth's celebrated photographs-many involving nudity-fired each girl's psyche with a sense of artistic accomplishment. Then, suddenly, their idyll was shattered. 13 years later, Myla, still traumatized and teaching under an alias at a small east-coast college, receives a strange communication that calls her back to her past. Fleeing the one man who's managed to pierce her defenses, she flies home to be told by a lawyer that his anonymous client wishes her to receive a series of packages in measured installments. The packages contain artifacts of Myla's past and ignite a burst of revelations, forcing her to relive-and come to terms with-the awful truth.A novel that speaks of artistic responsibility and triumph over loss, THE EFFECTS OF LIGHT rushes headlong to an ending that is drenched in poignancy. It marks the debut of a remarkable talent.

Review: 'Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply poignant' INDEPENDENT 'Feminist without being man-hating, entertaining without being trite, and political without being earnest' EVENING STANDARD 'A million women can't be wrong - it IS good!' JONATHAN MYERSON 'Filled with generous energy and delight' THE TIMES
