When painter Celeste Blackwood vanishes in the autumn of 1911, her disappearance is dismissed by the community as a nuisance rather than a tragedy: she’s nothing more than a flighty young socialite running away from her responsibilities and marriage. But the mystery of Celeste’s fate endures through the decades until a curious museum curator uncovers a series of letters, newspaper clippings, journal entries and police reports. Together, they reveal a story of motherhood, family secrets, cannibalism and murder, and chronicle the extraordinary lengths a desperate mother will take to save her child.
Enthralling and disturbing, The Blackwood Papers explores the shadowy region between imagination and reality, myth and science, truth and deception. From turn-of-the-century San Francisco to misty Canadian forests and rocky Arctic islands, novelist Kim Bannerman has created a harrowing landscape for readers to explore with every page of The Blackwood Papers.
