Overview
Simona and Gemma live an ocean apart and never meet, yet they have much in common: art, longing, and a magic that changes both of their lives. And then there is Peter, the man they love. Magic—like any great act of creation—comes at a price...and one of them will have to pay. Art. Love. Magic.
