About the Book:
The Loneliest Muse (by Tyger B. Dacosta, illustrations by Susi Galloway) is about a Muse on old Greece.
Hope faces the greatest challenge a Muse has ever known! She lacks a talent in which to inspire others. Hope is a young, black, Muse who looks to be a child of six or seven but in actuality is over 200 years old and resides on the island of Leisha with her eight sisters the Greek, Goddesses of inspiration. Though loved by all, it is foreseen by Delphi the blind Muse of prophecy that in order for Hope to find her talent and fulfill her destiny she must do what mo other Muse has ever done. She must leave the island of Leisha. Hope is scared and unsure about her sisters decision but Clio the Muse of history assures her its the only way but she will not go alone. Aided by a beautiful, golden swan boat whose magic can take Hope to where she is needed most, she sails off into the approaching dawn uncertain where the boat will take her.
