Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland
Girl in Hyacinth Blue

JudysAntiques, September 16, 2010

This is the greatest book I have ever read. It is moving in many ways. I laughed, but I also cried while reading it. Susan's perfect way of describing people, places, scenarios, carried me through time and introduced me to many families who I was able to feel intimately close to.
Throughout the book I could visualize (and still can) the painting of the girl in hyacinth blue as if I had actually seen it. The literary richness of this book makes me want the painting to exist, and I want to also see it if only once, as I grew to love it deeply too, like many of the characters.
I highly recommend this book not only to art lovers and literature fans, but to everyone who wants a wonderful book to read.
