Publisher's Summary

In 1892 Paris, Julius Stewart painted The Baptism, a Vanderbilt family scene that contains an embarrassing secret. In the present day, art historian Grace Atwood becomes obsessed with the painting and its hidden clues for reasons that have more to do with her personal ghosts. Either her doting husband is trying to make her think she's crazy, or she really is in the early stages of dementia.

Difficult to follow

I received an audio version of this book to write a review.

I had a difficult time getting this to play. I had to download it several times before it would play past the first chapter.

It jumps around to much for me to follow. One chapter you are in the 1800's the next 2010 and back and forward. As well as too much time being spent on trivial things (like the fact that you can still buy fuses for 1930's radios) why there needs to be a complete chapter on that I'm not sure.

The narrator was good but not one of my favorite but that could be because I wasn't impressed with the manuscript.
