about

Art is Gabrielle's passion, but her parents have other plans for her future-marriage to a man three times her age who holds nothing but disdain for art. Gabrielle is determined to escape life as the baron's trophy wife and the confinement of traditional roles. She flees her privileged home in the French countryside for Paris and the grandmother who understands her passion. When she cannot locate her grandmother, Gabrielle is left on her own in the City of Lights. The art world of Paris, 1900, brims with excitement, opportunity, and risk. Should Gabrielle trust her new friends, or will they take advantage of her hopes and dreams?Brenda Joyce Leahy loves books, dogs, family, friendship, tea, golf, hiking, skiing, long walks, writing and Paris-not necessarily in that order. She lives with her family near the Rocky Mountains in Calgary, Alberta.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pick up more than one copy! I bought this book with one of my nieces in mind and like any good aunt and bookworm would took the opportunity to check out myself. I was entertained and enchanted. The young female protagonist provides a timeless portrait of a teen’s struggle to forge their own identity independent of his/her family tempered with an appreciation of the support family provides. The setting (early 20th century Paris) is sure to awaken the travel bug and has the added benefit that the reader is certain to learn a few things about history without even realizing it. I like it so much another niece will receive a copy; what better recommendation could there be?
