Our first glimpse of Rya is through her diary. An investment banker by profession, Rya has written a book called Windblown and is now experiencing the success of having authored a story liked by many.
Little did she expect it, but she is a successful author now. Teana the protagonist of her novel, is a powerful girl who knows her mind.
Painted Years' is all about what Rya is, apart from being an author. Or what an author is, when she is not autographing her books! Our visual of an author is one who sits at leisure and always has a large mug of coffee and a computer around her. When we see Rya we see a really busy and thoughtful girl, going through a life packed with pleasant surprises and unpleasant shocks, determined to make the most of every moment. This is a story of a daughter, a wife, a mother, a worker, all in one.
Rya's illness adds to the piquancy of the story; she is terminally ill; and is balancing her life to suit that of her family and people she loves. And she loves everyone with her whole heart.
Read about what goes on in Rya's life as she prepares to live and die in turn.
