Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautifully evocative! This story is overflowing with evocative passages about art, architecture, the artistic process, the beauty of Melbourne and surrounding area in Australia, Ireland, food and surfing. If you like to read descriptive stories that spare few details for the senses, this will appeal. If a series of paintings (and all their layers of color and meaning etc) had to be put into words, the result would be much like this book; rich and beautiful. Andi and Caitlin each have a wonderful circle of friends and family who are loving, supportive and easy to imagine as real people; both share more thoughts and feelings within their circles than with each other so the reader has more character insight than the protagonists. Brought together by a mutual passion for art, they differ in nearly every other way. It took me a long while to warm up to Caitlin but she did eventually get under my skin; Andi was easier to understand with her creative fire expressed in paintings, less so in words. Their romance is passionate but at times understated, with a lack of clear communication from the beginning between these two women being an issue. For me the greater love story is the one of Caitlin’s grand aunt recounted thru the book; that and the author’s clear love for Australia and Ireland. C Fonseca is a true artist with words and I’d be interested to read more of her writing in the future.
