The Blue Bath
American Kat Lind, has just returned to London following the death or her mother. At a gallery opening with her friend Jorie she is surprised to find not only paintings of herself on display but the artist Daniel Blake who painted them. Kat and Daniel had a past when she was a student in Paris. Although, she has not seen Daniel for twenty years his appearance may change her life and that of her husband and son if she allows it.
Throughout the story Kat has to struggle with the notion that she might want to regain something she lost in the past but on the other hand she might need to stay put with a future she is comfortable with, not only for herself but for her son as well. But as in life, nothing is certain and in the end she may not have the luxury of choice.
This is a beautifully written book and I just loved the story. It's full of great locations, wonderful descriptive detail and I love the way the author captures the characters. I felt like I had meet all of these people somewhere before. The story was presented in such a lush and vivid manner that it would no doubt translate well into a film. I can't wait to read more by this author.
