Beyond the look into the life of a serious artist, this story exposes a young woman who, in her earlier years, cannot seem to help being herself. When she becomes an adult, circumstance eventually forces her to come back to herself--thankfully, before she's too far off. Katherine is a character who, for whatever reasons, simply cannot live (what would be for her) a facade of a life. To me, that's what's most valuable about this book.
