This was fabulous! I was curious about it, and have long been curious about the painting called "Portrait of Madame X" by John Singer Sargent. The author did a tremendous job of blending what we know about Madame X (actually Virginie Amélie Avegno Gautreau) and fiction to make a compelling work of historical fiction. I read it in one day (afternoon to early morning).
