Please join us in reading The Last Painting of Sara De Vos by Dominic Smith for our suggested book club monthly reading.
We will be reviewing The Last Painting of Sara De Vos along with our monthly book club discussions questions for November 31st, 2016.
Set in the Netherlands, New York and Sydney, in three different time periods (1631, 1957, and 2000), this book is about the lives of 3 people, Sara De Vos, Ellie Shipley and Marty De Groot.
The rare painting “At the Edge of a Wood,” painted by De Vos, is the centerpiece of the story that entwines the lives of these people.
New York Times book review says it’s “an elegant page-turner that carries its erudition effortlessly on an energetic plot.”
Dallas Morning News says it’s “a sublime tale of one woman’s lost art, another woman’s tragic mistake, and a privilege man’s link between the two…”
As a fan of art and historical fiction, I am looking forward to reading The Last Painting of Sara De Vos!
This historical fiction has high praises and has been compared to works like Donna Tart’s The Goldfinch and Tracy Chevalier’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.
