Kay Lange, a fine arts dealer, has left her position and comfortable life in Montreal to establish a gallery in a beautiful building on the harbour in Hamilton, Ontario. As she follows a dream of independence in her career, she hopes to define herself to and deepen her relationship with her son. Kay’s building soon reveals a sad past and a cast of characters with little interest in her vision. It forces her to examine issues of gentrification, cultural appropriation, the systemic challenges facing a creative entrepreneur and accept that her own life will not be linear. And as we follow along we learn to look and listen for the story in every painting, to learn how the visual arts provide a sense of place and how creatives pave the path to reviving community.

This is the first book from Bettianne Hedges. She has a degree in Philosophy from the University of Waterloo and continues to study writing. She works as a Real Estate Broker in Hamilton and helps her clients deal with many of the same challenges as her protagonist Kay Lange.  Bettianne is also involved in the visual arts as a gallery volunteer and collector.
