A special thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Alice Hoffman is one of my absolute favourite authors. How excited was I to get an ARC of this book? I was not disappointed at all; I absolutely love art history being an art history major, and couple this with Hoffman's exquisite writing, I couldn't put the book down and I absolutely loved it!
Her writing, and descriptions are so beautiful. The way she described his paintings gave them the respect they deserve. Pissarro was after all a founding father of Impressionism, a much loved art period. I don't want to give too much away from the story, this historical fictional account of Rachel was so well done. I love the build of the story, and that Hoffman took the time to develop the characters, and the story all throughout Rachel's life.
