Brina and Eagan meet for the first time when she’s nine and he’s fourteen. They like each other from the very beginning, though their bond isn’t immediate, but it grows over the years. What links them is the fact that their parents are photographers and are extremely devoted to their work and to each other; so much so that both Brina and Eagan have to learn how to take care of themselves from a very young age. Despite their differences, age, gender, nationality – Brina is Italian and Eagan is American – they find comfort in their growing friendship.
Then Brina becomes a teenager, and her feelings for her friend start changing and deepening. New desires stir within her. As soon as Brina realizes how those feelings complicate her friendship with Eagan, she runs away from him.
A few years later, Brina is twenty and Eagan is twenty-five, they find one another once again.

Publisher’s note: This is a fully re-edited and enriched with new and special contents version of the previously published novel, A Veil of Glass and Rain, by Petra F. Bagnardi (aka Petra March).
What an amazing book, so beautifully written. So full of love and compassion. Brina and Eagan grew up in an unconventional way that worked for their two families. Both their parents were photographers that pulled them into different parts of the world but the two families always spent the summer together. Brina and Eagan had a friendship that was solid and loyal. They had a love for each other even when they were kids that matched no other. They were family and the very best of friends.
This book was so descriptive about their emotions and how their love just carries them in life. It delve into the relationships of those around them and how being apart from each other was suffocating. The story is told from both Brina and Eagan’s perspective and goes back to when they first met when they were kids, to the present, and then in the future. This story really brought out your emotions while reading it and you could really feel what they were experiencing. The dependency they had on one another throughout their lives was really heart felt. It really tugged at your own heart.
This is a definitely a 5 star. The story will pull you in from the beginning and you will get trapped in the emotion of the characters. You have to check it out. Great job Petra. Can’t wait for the next book in the series.
