Inhaltsangabe: Fifteen-Year-old Sienna Scully is locked in a lonely world of her own. In awe of her father, an unapproachable genius whose towering bronze sculptures have brought him international fame; distant from her mother, who manages her husband's career, Sienna spends her days sketching in the woods, avoiding her parents' glamorous life.
Then Hugh Scully is diagnosed with a serious illness, and everything changes. As Sienna watches helplessly, her mother devotes the same energy to her husband's health that she does to his career, pushing him to try harder, to make himself well. But when Sienna's mother travels out of town, Hugh turns to Sienna, reaching out, asking her to be his companion on a journey first to the seductive world of the Manhattan gallery scene; then to a remote Maine island. And it's there Sienna realizes that Hugh doesn't intend to return; that her new found closeness to her father may have to last her a lifetime.
About the Author: Francess Lantz's beautifully rendered, compassionate portrait of a complex father-daughter relationship pays tribute to the ability of love to transcend boundaries of life and death. FRANCESS LANTZ is the author of SOMEONE TO LOVE and several other books for young people. A graduate of Dickinson College, she has worked as a children's librarian, a rock-and roll musician, and a book reviewer. She writes: "Although FADE FAR AWAY is a fictional story, I know how it feels to lose a father and to feel on the outside, powerless to help. My father, an architect, died when I was fifteen. I often wished I'd had a chance to spend time alone with him during his illness. Instead, I've given my main character, Sienna, that chance. Francess Lantz lives with her husband and young son in Santa Barbara, California.
