"At the center of all the entwined lives in Newford stands a young artist named Jilly Coppercorn, with her tangled hair, her paint-splattered jeans, a smile perpetually on her lips--Jilly, whose paintings capture the hidden beings that dwell in the city's shadows. Now, at last, de Lint tells Jilly's own story...for behind the painter's fey charm lies a dark secret and a past she's labored to forget. And that past is coming to claim her now." --

Very deep and thought provoking book! Really worth reading.

Charles de Lint really makes fantasy and reality come together in a fictional US town. He combines the two with a mastery paralelled to Piers Anthony and Terry Brooks. This was my first reading of his books, and I'm hooked!
