    Amazing

    The author has written an incredible novel, almost as vivid as one of Vincent van Gogh's own paintings. Pick up this book, you will not regret it.

    Escape to Southern France

    This book takes you on a journey through southern France during the last few years of Vincent Van Gogh's life. Through extenisve research the author is able to re-create his experiences in the the town of Arles, the assylum, and then his demise in Auvers-Sur-Oise. The story really develops around who the woman Rachael was, the woman that he handed his ear to after cutting it off, and what their relationship might have been like. It reads like fiction, like a love story, but with lots of historical facts weaved in. You will feel like you really know Vincent after reading this book. I felt compelled to constantly put the book down and go search out his paintings on the internet and study them as she described them. This is a great book for anyone interested in artists, historical fiction, or southern France.

    Great Book!

    There is so much information out there about VanGogh - this was a delight to know more about him from some one close to him. More insight and understanding of the man. Makes him more realistic and more human.

    a terrific look at the life of Van Gogh

    In 1888 in Arles, France, prostitute Rachel Courteau takes a needed time out from her brothel life that she embraced out of necessity when her parents died. She hides in a garden from the nasty cracks of the good citizens, but soon falls asleep. She is awakened by a thirty something red haired male who has secretly sketched her nap.

    Rachel assumes her visitor, the crazed artist Vincent Van Gogh is another client. He arranges a tryst but brings with him wildflowers. He begs her to let him paint her instead of sleeping with her as she expected. As their relationship blossoms in spite of his increasing bouts madness, she meets his friend Gauguin while wondering if she can ever be free of being a fille de maison as increasingly she believes it will not be with Van Gogh consumed by his lunacy.

    Rachel is the key to this terrific look at the life of Van Gogh as she brings freshness to the artist and the period. As Sheramy Bundrick notes in her afterward, there is little known about the real Rachel so the author took liberties with her, but tried to remain true to what is considered factual about Van Gogh; she succeeds. Fans of historical biographical fiction will want to read SUNFLOWERS, as art professor Sheramy Bundrick captures the essence of Vincent Van Gogh's Lust for Life (by Irving Stone) through Rachel's first person perceptions of the artist and his work especially SUNFLOWERS.
