Look a Little Deeper…
Wow. I will just start there.
I picked up the Genius and the Muse because it was available free in Kindle Unlimited and I kinda LOVE Elizabeth Hunter. But I has a preconceived notion that this was some light fare fast fiction.
I was so wrong.
Weaving between two time periods, multiple locations and varying people, a story is sketched from pencil and eventually becomes a full color work of art (see what I did there?!)
Kate is a student obsessed with a little-recognized work by her favorite photographer. The simple piece evokes something in her, and when she finds a random connection to it with another artist, a tale begins to unfold via the varying memories and viewpoints of a host of colorful characters, including Javi.
Gruff and isolated, Javi is a brilliant artist who is not looking for complications, but they’re about to step into his
studio… Wanna talk about an anti-hero you just cannot help loving!
I just recently found the wonderment of Hunter’s “classics” and I gotta say, I am surprised it took so long for this woman to take off. Quiet simply, her writing is brilliant.
If you’d like something a little different, you can pick it up here.
