about

Emily Carr lived in a magical place that she had christened The House of All Sorts. In this House which is open to all that is vital on Earth, Emily Carr, with all her greatness and her imperfections, receives visitors from her planet: Lizzie, her sister, is greeted with war whoops and rebuffs, for Lizzie is the adversary, as is all Victorian society; Sophie, her Amerindian friend, who brings messages, reminders and lessons from life; Lawren Harris, her young painter friend from the Groupof Seven, who wants to free painting from dogma and revolutionize art in Canada; the Soul Tuner, who hears her cry and vibrates to her thoughts of adoration and compassion ? and D'Sonoqua, the Goddess-Mother on her phosphorescent pedestal, who beckons to Emily from the old world of legends.
