Book Review - The Passion of Artemisia

The Passion of Artemisia: A NovelThe Passion of Artemisia: A Novel by Susan Vreeland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Historical Fiction is quickly becoming one of my favorite genres. This book did not disappoint. The book is told from the perspective of Artemesia Gentileschi beginning with the trial of her rapist, through her struggles and triumphs as a daughter, wife, mother, and woman artist. The characters and relationships are strong as are the scenic descriptions. This is a beautifully written novel. I highly recommend it.

  1. I love it...I mean I was a history major and all ;) Though sometimes I can't help picking historical fiction books apart because of that. Oops.
