Struggling artist Jimmy Whistler is at war with his patron. Denied full payment, he and muse Maud Franklin face ruin.
 
As Jimmy’s enemies mount, he resolves to sue a famous critic for libel, in a last-ditch attempt to ward off the bailiffs. Although she has no position in society, Maud is expected to do her part. But Maud has a secret that forces her to choose between art and love.
 
Mrs Whistler is a dazzling glimpse inside a world of passion,
art and power.

Praise for this book

"Completely engaging …wonderfully evocative. It makes you want to visit the countryside and see Turner’s paintings again. A great book." - Philippa Gregory

"A terrific novel … It springs off the page, bristling with life. A vivid and absorbing portrait of bohemian London and the love affair between Whistler and his long-suffering but spirited muse." - Deborah Moggach
