The Muse  –  Jessie Burton

Convinced her art dealer father will scorn her paintings because she is a woman, Olive hides her considerable talent by claiming that her friend Isaac was their creator.  Living in Spain in the late 1930’s ,  their lives are changed forever by the civil war.       In London thirty years on,  Odelle’s poetic talent is encouraged by the mysterious Marjorie Quick through whom Odelle discovers a link to the past.

Well written and a compelling read.
