I've never had to bail on a book for the club discussion, but I just couldn't get into it. There's a lot of complex back story at the beginning and it's all very confusing.
Only 10 left in stock (more on the way). I've never had to bail on a book for the club discussion, but I just couldn't get into it.

Translated by Liz Heron. Whatever its genre, ''Artemisia'' employs admirable artistry in depicting the turbulent life and times of two great painters. Return to the Books Home Page.
Born in the early 1600s when artists were the celebrities of the day, Artemisia was apprenticed to her father, the artist Orazio Gentileschi, at an early age.
