The Allegra Series by Barbara Lambert

Weaving finely spun filaments of the lyric and mythic, Barbara Lambert creates a vivid tapestry of a year in the life of Vancouvers Allegra Schlemann, a middle-aged woman in the throes of a knotty love affair with a married man, a newly-crafter career as an artisan and a battle against a debilitating disease. Unable to see her way clear of the emotional clutter these changes wreak, Allegra hires would-be artist Brad Lindhall to fashion a mirrored wall, praying it will bring light and clarity into the encroaching dusk of her own life. Meanwhile, in Toronto, Brads estranged wife Mona researches Web & Fire: A Brief History of Cloth and Clay for an upcoming installation, her voice reaching into the past and across the country.In this brilliant recasting of a traditional love triangle, three artists find their way into the heart of genius, and of darkness, emerging strangely and irrevocably intertwined. Like her mythological predecessors-Philomela, Ariadne and Arachne-Allegra encircles lovers, entraps enemies and unfurls in the face of adversity.
