Cover for Our Lady of the Islands by Jay Lake and Shannon Page. A woman with long black hair stands in a white, flowing dress on a shore, looking out at the water and a multi-sailed ship.Jay Lake and Shannon Page’s Our Lady of the Islands has been named a Publishers Weekly Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book of 2014!

Sian Kattë and her husband have an amicable empty-nest marriage and a thriving business, but that all changes when a god’s emissary assaults Sian and gives her mystical healing abilities that threaten the dominance of the male physician-priests. Longtime short fiction collaborators Lake and Page worked closely on this intimate novel (set in Lake’s Green universe) before Lake’s death in mid-2014, and their styles intersect with smooth perfection.
