Gill Paul recommends
The Paris Muse (2024)
Louisa Treger
"Dora Maar, 'The Weeping Woman' of Picasso's famous paintings, steps out of the canvas in Louisa Treger's unforgettable new novel. Dora's passionate, obsessive relationship with the artist came close to destroying her, and Treger's beautifully written first-person narrative takes us deep inside her grief and torment. Picasso emerges as a controlling, sadistic man, who is single-minded in pursuit of his art first, his pleasure second. This is a powerful, absorbing read about a woman who was a talented artist in her own right, and it illustrates very graphically who was responsible for making the 'Weeping Woman' weep."
The Betrayal of Thomas True (2024)
A J West
"A gripping epic tale... a powerful new voice in historical fiction."
The Midnight Hour (2024)
Eve Chase
"I adored every word of this beautifully written, immersive family mystery."
