Historical fiction readers have long adored Rose's exquisitely researched and written novels. Her latest is the story of Jenny, a young artist who attends Louis Comfort Tiffany's prestigious artists' colony in hopes of escaping her past and securing a place for her work in the prestigious Tiffany Gallery in New York City. But secrets, rivalries, and a romance with Tiffany's grandson threaten her happiness in this glittering Jazz Age tale.
Fall into the atmosphere created that speaks of the early twentieth century. Although at first blush, it appears to be a more innocent time, it was anything but for young Jenny. It’s now 1924 and Jenny has escaped her dark past, the pain, the lies, the murder, the debt she paid that she never owed.
A gifted artist, her work reflects her inner turmoil, her lack of color in her life, until an invitation to Louis Comfort Tiffany’s artist’s colony helps one trouble young woman open her heart to life, ...more
3.5 Lush, beautiful colors everywhere Jenny looked. The light shining ng through stained glass, beautiful flowers, verdant green woods, the peacocks and the water fountains, everywhere one looked at Laurelton, there was beauty. The estate of Louis Comfort Tiffany, an estate he opens for a few talented artists, where they can come and perfect their art in beauty and ease. Jenny and Minx, the only two women, both talented, both with secrets in their pasts, though Minx comes from a much more privil ...more
What had happened in Jenny’s past that kept haunting her and kept her shrinking into the background instead of taking all that New York could offer her?
Was it bad enough to have to sidestep questions about it and fear that others were looking into her past?
Jenny moved to New York after her mother died and enrolled in art school, but she couldn’t accept the talent she had as her friend Minx pushed her forward and as Jenny protested.
We follow Jenny as we are made aware of the past that affected ...more
Jenny Bell is a new artist, trying to escape a horrific past. When she is invited by Louis Comfort Tiffany to learn at his art institute, she takes the opportunity in the hopes of making a name for herself.
I was very interested in reading this book because I love historical fiction and I love art. I found the book to be slow at times and somewhat confusing. According to the summary, the book is about her time at this summer art institute, yet it takes forever for her to get there. Jenny seemed a ...more
Jenny Bell keeps deep secrets about herself and her deceased family in the 1920s. Her teen years were problematic because of the abusive treatment by her stepfather. Jenny decides to move far from her demons and enrolls in art school in New York City.
Minx Deering, a fun-loving art student, befriends Jenny at school. Minx is a rich socialite who is very generous. The two become roommates allowing Jenny the ability to save money on rent. A deep friendship develops with a common goal to spend the s ...more
This book really ended up annoying me and I wonder if it would have worked better had I tried to read it instead of listening to the audio version. I'm so over barely competent heroines and yes, I'm well aware Jenny had a traumatic past but by the halfway point I was ready to smack her into next Tuesday. I also found it highly dubious that she coughs up her virginity and Big Secret (one she's been hiding for 8 YEARS!!!) to the first handsome man who turns her head - instead of sharing those secr ...more
I’ve been a fan of M.J. Rose for quite some time. She always writes really rich and atmospheric novels of romance and historical fiction blended together. I love her Reincarnationist series is really fun but I got hooked on her books with her Daughters of La Lune books!
She has this great storytelling style that never seems to fail in any of her series’. She always has this velvety tone and it never fails to hook me.
So when this book came up for review, to say I was thrilled was a complete unders ...more
