    Interesting read

    I really enjoyed this book. The plot is different from anything I have ever read. There was something very refreshing about the subject-matter. The development of the main character was also interesting.

    Outstanding!

    This novel expertly combines a very personal and moving narrative with a series of though-provoking theories about art. It has actually changed my perspective on art and inspired me to learn more about art history and theory. I was moved to tears throughout most of my reading.

    Beautiful and unique

    This is a wonderfully unique novel with characters that I came to really care for. While that has happened to me before, what hasn't is that I felt like I wanted to be involved in their conversations, weigh in on their thoughts and be involved in the dialogue. This story gave me new ideas and really got inside my head. It is beautifully written and I can't wait for more from Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

    I couldn't put it down...

    I was given an advance copy of this book by a friend, after he insisted that I must read it immediately. I read a lot of popular fiction, and this was by far one of the most interesting books I have read in a long time. The basic story is crafted as a page-turning mystery, and it was one that kept me reading for multiple hours at a time (which I rarely do). But beyond that it is a beautifully written, emotional story about love, fear and forgiveness. People seem to be calling it ambitious for a first novelist, but that's what I loved about it so much. This book made me think about things in new ways, something I don't come across very often in today's new fiction. I can't wait for more from Beverly-Whittemore.
