This is not a love story. If it were, we would have the same story. But he has his, and I have mine.
In 1916, Georgia O'Keeffe is a young, unknown art teacher when she travels to New York to meet Stieglitz, the famed photographer and art dealer, who has discovered O'Keeffe's work and exhibits it in his gallery. Their connection is instantaneous. O'Keeffe is quickly drawn into Stieglitz's sophisticated world, becoming his mistress, protégé, and muse, as their attraction deepens into an intense and tempestuous relationship and his photographs of her, both clothed and nude, create a sensation.
Yet as her own creative force develops, Georgia begins to push back against what critics and others are saying about her and her art. And soon, she must make difficult choices to live a life she believes in.
A breathtaking work of the imagination, Georgia is the story of a passionate young woman, her search for love and artistic freedom, the sacrifices she will face, and the bold vision that will make her a legend.

Titillating and Brilliant
If you could sum up Georgia in three words, what would they be?
Senual, Bold, Suspenseful
What was one of the most memorable moments of Georgia?
Georgia's Handling of the Mural Job in NYC without Steiglitz's help.
What does Ann Marie Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her emphasis of Tripp's beautiful sentences have just the right touch.
Who was the most memorable character of Georgia and why?
Georgia: she was a trail-blazing female artist who has yet to get her due in the artistic canon!
Any additional comments?
I highly recommend this gorgeous and intoxicating read about not just a love story between to iconic artists, but a woman's drive to realize, protect and pursue her dream despite an unwelcoming world for a devoted artistic woman.

Could have been better.
The title should have been O’Keeffe and Stieglitz since it was an all too detailed novel about their relationship as much as it was about her art. There was no need to have all the graphic depictions of their sex lives. The book needed a better editor, many of the same actions told over and over, adding nothing. I listened to the audio version of this book and several times almost stopped listening because the narrator spoke so slowly, emphasizing so many words, that it was difficult to keep listening.
