In 1937, Lisette Roux and her husband, Andre, move from Paris to Provence to care for Andre's grandfather, Pascal. Pascal, a frame maker, befriended Pissarro and Cezanne, some of whose paintings he received in trade for his frames. When war breaks out, Andre goes off to the front, but not before hiding Pascal's paintings from the Nazis. With German forces spreading across Europe, Lisette sets out to locate the paintings. Her search acquaints her with the land, her neighbors, and even herself in ways she never dreamed possible. An elegantly conceived ode to art and history from the author of Clara and Mr. Tiffany (2011).
