Today’s spotlight brings us a book I’d love to read called Where the Light Falls by Katherine Keenum and it releases today! Any book that has both Paris and artists within its pages is one that’s sure to catch my interest. This is Katherine’s debut novel and I think it’ll be one that will be very successful. Take a look at what the book is about and a bit about the author and of course the giveaway at the end of the post for your chance to win a copy! Look at this cover too – I think it’s gorgeous.
Where the Light Falls (from Penguin)
As the Belle Epoque dawns, Paris attracts artists from everywhere. One is Jeanette Palmer, daughter of a prominent Ohio family, who has left Vassar College under a cloud of scandal.
Amid the city’s great bohemian neighborhoods and teaching studios, Jeanette befriends other female artists, as well as an American Civil War veteran named Edward Murer. She begins to achieve a level of artistic success. And her happiness increases as she and Edward grow more intimate with each other.
But Edward is plagued by his demons and addicted to laudanum—and as the world opens its arms to Jeanette, and the society around her is transformed by cultural and scientific innovations, she must resolve a conflict utterly new to so many women: the choice between ambition and love.
