The lady in blue
An elaborately woven novel of intrigue about one of history’s most curious and enduring legends the enigma of the Lady in Blue…
Jennifer Narody has been having disturbing dreams involving eerie images of a lady dressed in blue. 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 nun. Intrigued by her rumoured 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 Jennifer Narody, who unwittingly holds the key to the mystery that the Catholic Church, the US Defense Department, and the journalist are each determined to decipher the Lady in Blue.
