The Flames by Sophie Haydock

#TheFlames #NetGalley

The Flames is a complex and well written historical fiction title that tells the story of Egon Schiele, the times in which he lived in Vienna, the women who surrounded him, and some scandals. Sound like a lot? It is but the research and assured writing of Ms. Haydock leaves readers in good hands.

Four women tell their stories; each of them longs for significance with the artist. There are those who are neighbors, relatives and models with each contributing to the narrative.

Schiele had a short life but it was certainly one that was packed with incident. The times were also intense.

I recommended this title for those who like historical fiction, complicated characters, art and, long and immersive reads.

Many thanks to NetGalley and ABRAMS for this title. All opinions are my own.

This title was published in March 2023.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
