Painting Juliana, A Novel by Martha Louise Hunter

A young girl's terrifying nightmare, five mysterious oil paintings, and a red, flaming firebird all carry the same message: stop running, stand still, and let the funnel cloud suck you up inside.

It's the last thing Juliana Birdsong wants to hear. Now a woman who's losing everything, she's still running from the dream, and it's catching up fast. When her Alzheimer's-stricken father's canvases eerily come to life, setting off a surreal time warp that exposes secrets and yearnings that mirror her own, Juliana finds that some memories can be a blessing to forget.

When she’s left shamed, degraded and desperate for her old life back, the dream is still chasing Juliana, and it’s catching up fast. Just when she can’t run any faster, the funnel cloud is waiting on the horizon, twisting more violently than before.

Painting Juliana is an incredible debut novel from first-time author Martha Louise Hunter.
