Astonishing Splashes Of Colour by Clare Morrall

In Astonishing Splashes Of Colour, Kitty is a 32-year old woman, still grieving for the baby she lost. She also suffers from synaesthesia, a condition in which feelings are experienced as colors, so Kitty sees all her family members as different colors. As Kitty's obsession with children leads her to begin to unravel emotionally, she tries to reconstruct her own past. Her mother died when she was three, but when Kitty begins to question her father and siblings about it and other events of her past, the truth seems contradictory and elusive. As bits and pieces of her past come together, the mystery that became Kitty's life begins to take shape. Clare Morrall's novel was nominated for the 2003 Man Booker Prize and has received rave reviews. The Observer says of Astonishing Splashes Of Colour, "Morrall reveals her mystery artfully and convincingly, telling a story that is shocking, heart-stopping and completely absorbing.
