This book was the latest selection for the book club I belong to. I enjoyed the story, I enjoyed the descriptions of Paris and of the beginnings of the Impressionist style, including the Salon de Refuses. I did find the book overall a little tedious. I think I would have rated it higher had it been about 100 pages shorter. Not that I don't love a long book, but I think it ambled along a lot more than necessary.
