The family dynamics are also particularly well-drawn. This is not a faux family that is either too perfect or too ridiculous. The communication between Emma and her family members is believable and genuine. These relationships are what drew me into the story.The quirks and dysfunction are true to life, in a way that I found extremely endearing–and also frustrating. I *cared* about the outcome. I wanted to scream at characters, to shake them: I was invested.
Despite the heavy subject matter (revenge, violence, culture clashes), The Red Road was a quick and satisfyingly intense read. – Sara Strand, Amazon review

Dared men believe that BABYLON would ever introduce the SAVIOR? Taught to exalt the false words of the sons of darkness, till he finds the TRUTH, man can only know how to misrepresent, hate and lie!
Isa 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a WAY that they KNEW NOT; I .. will lead them in a PATH that they have NOT KNOWN: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Isa 59:8 The WAY OF PEACE they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know PEACE.
Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and FEW there be that FIND it.
Isa 35:3 Strengthen ye the weak hands! Confirm the feeble knees. 4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not!

About the book:
Abigail Argent stands out. Some people notice that she always wears gloves and shudder when they know why. The ones who know her best notice her ability with metal. Abigail's particular talent lies in the colouring of alloys, for seeing the beauty in a plain piece of metal and being able to draw it out. Her study leads her to discover a connection between her own craft and that of her favourite childhood myth: changing lead into gold. Moving to Venice, Abigail continues to uncover more about the history of her trade while making friends, and a lover, whose lives become inextricably linked with her own. But her abilities soon peak the interests of a powerful group, determined to guard the secret that she may unwittingly expose. Delving into the deepest secrets of ancient Italy, Abigail's story will take everything you think you know about alchemy and turn it on its head.
