My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This fictionalized life of the Canadian painter Emily Carr was a fascinating look into the world of First Nations people in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Vreeland's portrait of Carr was complex and sympathetic and I found her a very likable character. The stories of some of her friends, especially Harold Cook, were heartbreaking. This was my second Susan Vreeland book and I will seek out more of her work. I am counting this book toward the Canadian Book Challenge.
