I absolutely LOVED this book so much!!!! If I could hug it, I would, but I have the Kindle version...LOL. If you are a lover of detailed and descriptive writing, flowers and art in any form (specifically Impressionism and Claude Monet), and a good love story, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!
Monet and Oscar gives you mystery, kindness, compassion and passion. As a reader you are in the home, family and garden of Monet.
What a terrific book and fabulous read! I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. The author's descriptive writing made it easy to visualize the house, studios, grounds and gardens there at Giverny. It's now on my bucket list to go there and see for myself.
This delightful, deeply researched first novel draws a complex portrait of Monet the painter and patriarch, through the eyes of a fictional addition to Monet's household, Oscar Bonhomme.
