I Always Loved You: A Novel by Robin Oliveira, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®

I thoroughly enjoyed this work of historical fiction and would highly recommend it. Our members look forward to a "field trip" that will even further enhance our discussion. I've read several books on the era, but nothing that focuses so much on the personal lives of the Impressionists. I usually prefer biography to fiction in books about actual people, but Robin Oliveiera did her research and breathes life into the characters, intriguing me enough that I have biographies of Cassatt and Morisot on hold at my library. This is the interesting story of the on again, off again, relationship between Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas during their memorable careers as artists. There is a major side story about the artist Manet and his never ending attraction to his sister in law Berthe.

Then one evening a friend introduces her to Edgar Degas and her life changes forever. Years later she will learn that he had begged the introduction, but in that moment their meeting seems a miracle.
