Publisher's Summary

As a child growing up in 1920s Paris, Ida Chagall copes with her father Marc Chagall's brilliant artistic mind and overbearing ego and the tight leash he keeps on her. But as Ida blossoms into a young woman, she begins to glimpse freedom and opportunities for herself.
When she falls in love for the first time, her father paints "The Bridal Chair" as her wedding present, a symbol of his anger that pierces Ida to the heart. Against a backdrop of the Nazi invasion of France, Ida fights for her own survival as an independent young woman while nurturing the dark, creative genius of her parents.

An award winning narrator?

I was so put off by the narration (should have read other reviews first) that I had to stop listening after 7 hours. Just couldn’t bear it anymore. The shuffling of papers, clearing of throat, dry raspy voice, etc. So distracting. I looked up who this narrator was and was shocked to see how accomplished she is. The story itself wasn’t compelling enough to keep me going.

An important story but distracting reader

The reader made annoying swallowing sucking chewing slurping noises as she read it was very distracting
