This book tells the story of a group of artists during World War II. The story depicts the characters’ struggles, losses, and wins. Even though the book is historical fiction, the author bases her story around real artists of that time, including the main character.
The artists’ lives are forever changed by war, and this unique story shines light on the trying times for artists, and the challenges they faced to save their art, as well as, create. They are forced to flee their home areas as their lives are upheaved due to war.
The evolution of the main character is a transformative journey, and the reader is a vicarious traveller. The story is inspirational, and gripping from the first page. This book is highly recommended.
