Kathryn Callaghan has just finished her novel about painter Élisabeth Vigée-LeBrun, a survivor of the French Revolution hated for her sympathetic portraits of Marie Antoinette. Though still haunted by the story she has written, Kathryn must leave the eighteenth-century European world she has researched and made vivid in order to return to her own life as an American in 2012. Despite being separated by time, place, and culture, Katheryn and Élisabeth possess similar gifts and burdens; each will be called up and tested.

A little bit slow, too descriptive for my taste. Very interesting about the French painter Elizabeth Vigee Lebrun and the French revolution. But would not read anything from the author again.
