From the Publisher
From the bestselling author of Montana 1948 comes
the explosive story of an artist, his muse, and the staggering
price they pay for their chance at immortality.
Sonja Skordahl, a Norwegian immigrant, came to America looking for
a new life. Instead, she settled in Door County, Wisconsin, and
married Henry House-only to find herself defined by her roles as
wife and mother. Destiny lands Sonja in the studio of Ned Weaver,
an internationally acclaimed painter. There she becomes more than
his model and more than a mere object of desire; she becomes the
most inspiring muse Ned has ever known, much to the chagrin of the
artist's wife. When both Ned and Henry insist on possessing Sonja,
their jealousies threaten to erupt into violence-as she struggles
to appease both men without sacrificing her hard-won sense of self.
