Avatar for EmilyEm EmilyEm said:
A complicated tale of painters and painting, stretching from the time of the first Impressionists in Paris and in our own time in this country. Robert Oliver is the contemporary painter with the obsession for the dark haired woman he paints time and again. Book is written as homage to Joseph Conrad’s Lord Jim, with its principal character, the psychiatrist, an Andrew Marlow, too. Wow! I liked Andrew, even though he broke all the rules, and Mary and Kate and even the damaged Robert. And Beatrice and Olivier—even Yves—who could not like all these characters. Truly, a story of love and betrayal—and for several—obsession. Highly recommended. So well conceived and written.
