The Gypsy Madonna

Another layered novel. World War II, immigration, a boy coming of age and how he is affected by his "Gypsy Madonna" mother. Hard to describe succinctly, but the prose is poetic, the dialogue is fresh, there are strong emotional moments.

Last Voyage of the Valentina by Santa Montefiore
Rate this book
Clear rating
Authors with strange names can write books that are appealing to an ordinary guy like me.
The author uses a very large "canvas" to create an almost epic story of a woman's effort to find her family roots-- but this is a poor synopsis. Read it!

Luncheon of the Boating Party by Susan Vreeland
Rate this book
Clear rating
Paintings have a complex life to them. Each brushstroke is carefully thought out. Vreeland has written a factual-fiction of Renoir's creation of his famous "Luncheon of the Boating Party." His life is up there on the canvas.
