Book Description

Jan. 1 2002 Classic
Pierre thought he knew his Uncle Charles well. He had worked with him on a daily basis for fifteen years, assisting the austere art historian in his studies. Yet after Charles' death, Pierre finds a diary in which his uncle confessed to a secret, heartbreaking love affair. Pierre's search for the truth leads him to Judith, the woman his uncle so passionately loved, and when he meets her daughter Sarah, he finds that his own life will be changed for ever.

Beaussant's superbly crafted narrative effortlessly conveys the author's passion for art to the reader.
