A young WWI veteran searches for his French Impressionist father through encounters with Claude Monet and some of that movement’s key figures.
I was genuinely surprised by how much I loved this. I was drawn in from the blurb, it sounded different than anything I’ve read recently. Then once I got started I was drawn in by the writing and storyline. It completely drew me in from start to finish. I loved the characters, I loved the great attention to history, and I loved the writing style. It was such an easy read to get lost in and I was sad when it was over.
