oh alice hoffman...
you have done it again.
you have pulled me in
with vivid colors
and beautiful words
so many lines in this book
that i just wanted to read
to sink into and absorb...
her writing is lyrical and evocative.
the story is based on some true elements...
Camille Pissarro, a famous artist of the 20th century,
is one of the main characters but she
brings you into the life of his mother...
and all of the beautiful messiness
involved in being a family
and loving/letting go.
i am hoping there are more books
by her that i have not yet read...
and if there not,
i may have to re-read what i have already read,
she is that good.
5 out of 5 ♥♥♥♥♥'s
