The Tapestry is a heartfelt and deeply moving magical realism fiction book that touches on universal themes of love, pain, healing, and the joys of motherhood. Following the story of Maia, a young virgin who miraculously gives birth to a blind, albino, hermaphrodite, this powerful tale embodies dashes of magic and fantasy as the emotions pour out of each page. When Maia runs away from her life and seeks refuge in the woods, a pack of coyotes and unseen helpers lead her to an abandoned cottage, giving her and her baby a new life. She names her child Justice, and she raises him as a boy so that he can have a better chance in the harsh, male-dominated world of the early twentieth century.
But neither of them could have foreseen what fate had in store for them. When they’re forced to abandon their cottage and struggle to carve out a life for themselves in the city, Maia finds solace in Justice’s incredible gift – a supernatural ability to weave colorful tapestries that can predict the future. Armed with this gift and deeply bonded with the coyotes that saved them so long ago, Justice discovers his true identity as a girl – and she embarks on a journey to share her gift with the world. Perfect for readers who love emotional, thought-provoking contemporary fiction, The Tapestry is a unique and memorable story that echoes the full range of the human experience.
