A Work of Art

A Work of Art

From 1930s Paris to the small village of Roussillon during World War II, a story of love, loss, forgiveness and a deeply rooted passion for art unfolds in Lisette’s List (Random House, 2014), a new novel by the Wisconsin-born, New York Times bestselling author Susan Vreeland.

When Lisette and her husband move to southeastern France to care for his ailing grandfather, she listens to his stories about Paul Cézanne, Camille Pisarro and Pablo Picasso—but once war breaks out, it’s up to her to keep his paintings by the famed artists safe from the Nazis.

The author’s keen appreciation for art, France and spirited characters make her book sing.
