It is January and that means it is time for the next Heather Webb (@msheatherwebb) historical fiction novel. This time I was proud to join the blog tour hosted by Amy Bruno and her Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tour (@hfvbt): http://hfvirtualbooktours.com/rodinsloverblogtour/ . This happens to be my favorite tour but Bruno has some other tours if your tastes run a different genre way.
Camille found herself a student of Rodin who she struggled to love and at the same time get out from behind his shadow. The relationship went from student/teacher to peers and then lovers. In the end both of them had some touch of obsession and madness for their work and each other which jumped off the pages of RODIN’S LOVER. Although, this was not always pleasant for the reader it was pure, raw and powerful.
Always enjoy the backdrop of Paris and to cross with the painters and other notable figures of the time including: Manet, Zola and Hugo I was intrigued. The way the emotion lifted off of the pages in this novel is lasting even for some time after you finish. For me, I am compelled to seek out more information about Camille Claudel and go see the Rodin museum in Paris. Okay, for now Goggle will have to suffice that itch but I never mind dreaming of my next trip to Paris.
Thanks to Amy Bruno for saying yes to me and to Plume Books for supplying the book. And a special thanks to Heather Webb who fills my glass of historical fiction right to the top. If you missed BECOMING JOSEPHINE you might want to pick it up.
