5.0 out of 5 stars Entrancing Novel, June 3 2013
This review is from: The Painted Girls (Paperback)
I loved this book - the form in which it was written, the development of the characters, the wonderful picture of Parisian life in the 1880's, and the basis of the story in fact. During the reading, I researched Degas online, along with the opera and the ballet. I looked at the pictures of the little dancer and others of Degas' art, especially those involving the ballet "petit rats". Rarely do I read a book that leaves me emotionally and intellectually satisfied to the level that The Painted Girls did. A perfect read!

Beautifully written, extraordinary examination of the two principal characters, heartbreaking and ultimately redeeming. I loved this book from the first sentence and the words continue to resonate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Read, Oct. 29 2008
This was my first book written by Katrina Kittle. From the first chapter I was drawn in. The writing flows, the characters most human and the subject matter, though difficult, handled intelligently and compassionately. I was sorry when the book ended.
