Description

Gwen, struggling to be an artist, leaving for Paris where she becomes Rodin's lover and paints a small, intimate picture of a quiet corner of her attic room.

Then there is Charlotte a dreamy intellectual Edwardian girl, and Stella, Lucasta, Ailsa and finally young Gillian, who share an unspoken desire to have for themselves a tranquil golden place like that in the painting.

This is a novel about women's lives, about what it means and what it costs to be both a woman and an artist, and a compelling look at a beautiful painting and its imagined afterlife.
