From the highlands of Tibet, through the foothills of the Rockies and into the wild borderlands of Alaska, Tiger Lily Fontaine pursues an odyssey of self discovery as she tries to heal the family lineage of the grievous wounds left behind by a tragic murder buried decades in the past, yet refusing to be laid to rest.
With the help of an assortment of flavorful characters open to life and its abundant variety she digs deep into the hidden places in her heart and learns the tremendous value of finally coming clean.
An exploration of women and sexuality as constrained by societal norms, all the things we feel guilty for that we shouldn't, and an open and frank discussion of sexuality, relationship and identity in our evolving ethos.


I am honored to be able to promote the art of one of my favorite humans, Boulder artist, Heidi Northcote. She was able to pull the very essence of the worlds inside my head right out onto the cover of this book giving it the most beautiful swaddling clothes any author could hope for. To see more of her work, go to and explore some of her other dazzling creations.

About the Author

Ishtar Raizine
ishtarraizin the Spaces Between
I am on a mission. To see, touch, taste, feel, learn, know, be everything. If I can make it to every country and learn every language, and continue to create a totally new persona every few years delving into a whole world utterly different yet again from everything that I've done before - then someday I might finally start to feel satisfied. If I am not growing, I may as well not be breathing. I often feel impatient that I must stop long enough to sleep. Along the way, I tell stories. Of things I've done, things I've seen, things I've heard, things I've imagined. things I wish weren't so, and things I hope may someday come to be.

A page-turning, world-spanning, transformative, magical adventure about freeing the heart , discovering the power of loving presence, and transforming tragedy into joy. Oh, and it's well-written too. Just buy the darn book already -- it only costs 13.14 euros in Dutch currency, and who knows, maybe it'll change your life.

I'm so excited to get my copy in the mail! I've heard some pieces of the story from the author, but I can't wait to read the whole story put together in her book. She's such a passionate, inspiring person that I'm sure her book will help many people do their own soul laundering and find true life fulfillment!
