I downloaded this book because I am interested in photography and wanted to know more about Louis Daguerre. Although the book is a work of fiction, it still was very interesting and informative regarding Daguerre's development of the first camera and photographic images. The love story of his life-long obsession with his childhood maid was a little far-fetched, but it kept me hooked until the end. I liked his relationship with Pigeon and the fact that he was a father figure to her, rather than a love interest.

The writing in The Mercury Visions of Louis Daguerre is simply gorgeous. Smith is a master at using the English language. As a backdrop to the story of Daguerre is an achingly sad but rich love story. I loved the book.
