I Always Loved You by Robin Oliveira

The young Mary Cassatt never thought moving to Paris after the Civil War to be an artist was going to be easy, but when, after a decade of work, her submission to the Paris Salon is rejected, Mary’s fierce determination wavers. Her father is begging her to return to Philadelphia to find a husband before it is too late, her sister Lydia is falling mysteriously ill, and worse, Mary is beginning to doubt herself. Then one evening a friend introduces her to Edgar Degas and her life changes forever. Years later she will learn that he had begged for the introduction, but in that moment their meeting seems a miracle. So begins the defining period of her life and the most tempestuous of relationships.

  1. I look forward to you sharing your thoughts on some of the books you read recently – in particular The Bear. It's not my typical read but there's something about the synopsis that piqued my interest. Here's to another great reading week!:-)Bits & Bobs
