Arlene's Heart by Victoria Frances tells of the isolation, pain, and alienation of illness especially when it's compounded by being homeless. A young homeless girl makes her living on the streets making and selling dolls. She feels that each doll is a piece of herself going to a better home. But after an serious illness where she looses a breast, she finds it difficult to pick up her life and works through some issues in her imagination.

From official release/information:

Product Description: The fantasy artist famous for the FAVOLA series of books is back with a metaphor for hope in the shape of a fable where child-like fantasy contrasts with the feeling of isolation and alienation which invades our every day life. Lyrically and suggestively painted, a visual poem of fascinating sensuous gothic beauty. For mature readers.
