Publisher's Summary

The young Mary Cassatt never thought moving to Paris after the Civil War to be an artist was going to be easy, but when, after a decade of work, her submission to the Paris Salon is rejected, Mary’s fierce determination wavers. Her father is begging her to return to Philadelphia to find a husband before it is too late, her sister Lydia is falling mysteriously ill, and worse, Mary is beginning to doubt herself. Then one evening a friend introduces her to Edgar Degas and her life changes forever. Years later she will learn that he had begged for the introduction, but in that moment their meeting seems a miracle. So begins the defining period of her life and the most tempestuous of relationships.
In I Always Loved You, Robin Oliveira brilliantly re-creates the irresistible world of Belle Époque Paris, writing with grace and uncommon insight into the passion and foibles of the human heart.

A relationship of speculation investigated

A sweet story of two great artists and their relationship both professional and personal. Well performed and a fun read for anyone interested in what these two were really up to.

Beautifully written and vividly narrated

Although the plot is rather straightforward, the author succeeds in keeping me intrigued to the end, vividly recreating the life of Mary Cassatt and her relationship with Edgar Degas in Paris during heyday of Impressionist movements.
I didn’t know much about her, and the book gave me a good opportunity to explore this lesser known painter.
