Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The award-winning author of The Passion of Artemisia presents a dramatic, fictional portrait of pioneering artist Emily Carr, whose fierce independence, boldly original artwork, and unconventional approach to life overcame the restrictions of late Victorian society to blaze a new path for twentieth-century women artists. Reader's Guide available. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Emily has never been satisfied with the pious and rigid world she is expected to fit into, and when her creative talent and independent spirit refuse to be suppressed by her father's wishes that she marry and settle down, she defies her family's better judgement and travels to the wild coast of British Columbia.
