How disappointed after reading Tiffany Blues did I realize this was my first opportunity to read M.J. Rose. There are no words to capture my delight and appreciation for this beautiful escape. M.J. Rose’s latest, Tiffany Blues was truly a gem and welcomed journey back to the early 20th century. It was an enchanting mosaic of a gorgeous historical fiction novel, blended with colorful imagery and engaging characters that will shine bright for the reader.
As cliché as this sounds, I didn’t want to put the book down but it was at completion everything it was meant to be. This exquisite narrative was a testament to not only her love of art but it was as if the reader had a chance to be taken back in a time and be surrounded by so many talented artists. Despite it’s imagination, which lends it praise to her ability as a storyteller, the imagery through her description of places and the art really inspire an appreciation and love for the story being told.
Admiring the progression of the heroine, Jenny pushes the reader to want to root for her. Having such a tough background, getting the opportunity to experience a summer at the prestigious retreat of Louis Comfort Tiffany, transcend her emotional boundaries restricted from her past allowing determination, perseverance and rising to the potential she is unable to see gave the story something to hold onto.
I can’t compare this book her previous work but I can say it set the bar for me what I expect with the future. A beautiful narrative, engaging characters and a journey through one of our most creative, artistic times. If you are a fan of MJ Rose and haven’t read this yet, you will love it. If this is your first opportunity, add it to your TBR.
