Despite every effort, three generations of Peter’s family have failed to free themselves from the haunted atmosphere obscuring their family secret.
In a unique and beautiful mash-up of graphic novel and art book, a consequence of an infamous historic fire is contemplated.

From critical reviews of Delia Robinson’s work:

Colleen Mondor, Booklist. “…beautifully unsettling illustrations.... stunning.”

Marc Awodey, Art New England. “an inventive body of work that’s also unpretentious and playful….Robinson’s
works are evocative and multi-layered. She’s an inventive figurative painter, but also a visual storyteller whose language is clear yet technically complex.”

G. Blake MacPhail, Art Notes, Burlington, Vt. “a sense of fantastical visual adventure and emphatic artistry...a dream landscape consistent in style but surprising in content.”

Jerome Lepani, The Barre-Montpelier, Vt. Times Argus, “A sense of . . . the unseen apprehended in her sudden illuminations of ripe political or psychological reality.”
