I love historical fiction, so when I found this ART historical fiction for only a dollar, I was all about it!

Genuinely one of the best books I have ever read. Vreeland's writing manages to be enchanting while simplistic, creating tangible characters and a view of Italy unlike any other I've seen.
10/10, recommend to any and all art lovers!

This book is a really powerful book! It was one of the books I read in my Women's Studies lit courses at university. If you are interested in women's studies or feminist lit in general, this book is so amazing. It will enrage you, even as it is showing you the power of this talented female artist. This is a fictional account of Artemisia Gentileschi's life. It's on sale today for $1.99! 💗

slategreyskies I should add, this book does have graphic scenes in it and would almost definitely be a trigger for those who need to avoid sexual abuse/rape. 3y
Emiller Such a good book 3y
slategreyskies @Emiller yes, I think so too. It is one of a handful of books that I've read multiple times. 💗 3y
Loretta Loved this when I read it... like 12 years ago??? Time flies! 3y

#seasonsreadings2016 reminded me of the stretch where all I wanted was to read historical fiction based on paintings. Perfect for #artrelatedbooks!

slategreyskies The Passion of Artemesia is one of my favorite books. It's tragic and haunting. 3y
JDHawkins @slategreyskies It's been quite some time since I read it but I remember liking it a lot. 3y
mjdowens Oh I need this book soon. I read Girl With A Pearl Earring and was enthralled. This one sounds even better 3y
