He had left a part of himself with them, he knew. Each one had become a part of the story in his mind, each one could identify with the spirit of one of the characters, and only they could know which one. Samantha Perkins and her husband, Nick, live in the quiet little town of Benetton, Maine, with their children and grandchildren. They spent their days relaxing with their family and teaching their grandchildren Christian values through thrilling adventure stories of imaginary places. But when Samantha receives a puzzling phone call from her old roommate, Nancy, her quiet life of family, faith, and fairy tales is turned on its nose. Nancy's life is in shambles. Her husband has died, her daughter destroyed her most prized possession, and now she's missing. Just when things couldn't get stranger, Nick begins to have visions of a new story to tell the grandchildren, but unlike his other stories, he just can't quite figure out how this one ends. In Samantha, Nick, and Nancy's quest to put Nancy's life back together, they each find something more—the integral piece of the canvas of their lives. Join new author PJ Almeida in looking through Canvas Windows—an adventurous story of two worlds blended together by one man.

After just reading a few chapters, I am convinced that Mrs. (judging by mini-biography on the back cover) Almeida is using the talent that is spoken of in the beginning pages to transcribe an important story, both for believers and non-believers alike. Her Christianity is not simply rote but seems to be something she has put into practice with the God-given talents she's been blessed with, with an apparent belief that one's creative works should honour the Creator.
