An elaborately woven novel of intrigue about one of America's most curious and enduring legends -- the enigma of the Lady in Blue
In Los Angeles, Jennifer Narody has been having a series of disturbing dreams involving eerie images of a lady dressed in blue. What she doesn't know is that this same spirit appeared to leaders of the Jumano Native American tribe in New Mexico 362 years earlier, and was linked to a Spanish nun capable of powers of "bilocation," or the ability to be in two places simultaneously. Meanwhile, young journalist Carlos Albert is driven by a blinding snowstorm to the little Spanish town of Agreda, where he stumbles upon a nearly forgotten seventeenth-century convent founded by this same legendary woman. Intrigued by her rumored powers, he delves into finding out more. These threads, linked by an apparent suicide, eventually lead Carlos to Cardinal Baldi, to an American spy, and ultimately to Los Angeles, where Jennifer Narody unwittingly holds the key to the mystery that the Catholic Church, the U.S. Defense Department, and the journalist are each determined to decipher -- the Lady in Blue.

"A seventeenth-century nun converts New Mexican Indians to Christianity without ever leaving her convent in Spain. In 1972, a Benedictine priest invents a machine reputed to capture sounds and images of the past. A series of coincidences links an agnostic Spanish journalist and an American woman experiencing recurring dreams of a luminous blue lady. In addition to these elements, secret sects, top-secret military projects, a four-hundred-year-old church conspiracy, and a possible murder keep Boyd Gaines juggling the real with the surreal. Gaines treats faith-based explanations as evenhandedly as suggestions of the paranormal, always staying in touch with the characters' truths. His reading of Javier Sierra's (THE SECRET SUPPER) intriguing new work is magical enough to keep minds reeling. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
