Publishers Description Cherokee heritage runs deep in the heart of twelve year old Melody America Martin, however she is hurt and confused when classmates and others begin to make fun of her habit of drawing circles on anything and everything. Circles everywhere ? when she doodled they would show up; on her classwork assignments, in art class; they even appeared in the peculiar way Melody signed her name. Then the miracle begins as the young girl creates a beautiful drawing, one she sees in her mind alone. Suddenly the circles change to become the shape of faces and then emerges to include a young boy with penetrating eyes and the adventure begins. Who is the boy in the drawing? Where did this incredible artistic ability come from? Why is she compelled to color the drawing in certain exact detail? Not until Melody's class visits a prestigious art museum in Washington D.C. will the mystery unravel. A young girl's life is changed forever by the events that follow. Eyes of the King will hold the attention of pre-teens as well as adults. The author, a gifted writer and story-teller, has a unique sensitivity and insight into this age group.
