This title caught my eye because it promised to be a story about travel. With my real life travels sadly nil, I looked forward to a novel in which the protagonist travels to Milan, Venice, Ravenna, Florence, Siena, Rome, and Paris. I have been to five of these cities so looked forward to experiencing some nostalgia while also (virtually) traveling to a couple of new places.
Of course, though, this is a novel and not a travel guide so there is more to the book than noting what to see. Protagonist Claire is running away and so moves toward Viv. What happens to these two makes up this art filled story. Their relationship is not always easy but readers will hope for them and want them to have the lives that they want.
This author lends authenticity to her book. She clearly knows her art and is a good travel companion.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
