Robin Oliveira

A novel of Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas's great romance from the bestselling author of My Name Is Mary Sutter (2010). Mary moves to Paris after the Civil War to be an artist. When, after a decade of work, her submission to the Paris Salon is rejected, her determination wavers. Her family wants her to come back to Philadelphia and find a husband. Then one evening a friend introduces her to Edgar Degas--and so begins the defining period of her life and the most tempestuous of relationships. Oliveira brilliantly re-creates the irresistible world of Belle Epoque Paris.
