Booklist - 12/01/2018 Georgia O’Keeffe’s life and artistic development are chronicled in Meyer’s latest work of historical fiction. From her childhood in Wisconsin to her teaching in Texas to her professional life as an artist in New York and New Mexico, Georgia is depicted by Meyer as living life according to her own rules. Alternately revered and reprimanded for her unconventional ideas about art, teaching, and what women should and shouldn’t do, Georgia comes to life in Meyer’s portrait, which shows how an individual’s artistic vision can strain against societal expectations and ultimately break them down. In Georgia’s alternatingly practical and passionate first-person narrative, Meyer details periods of great inspiration alongside her creative dry spells. Images of Georgia’s art would have been a welcome addition, but readers will no doubt look up specific works, especially when she describes her growing fascination with abstraction. The story covers 29 years, but the pace moves along at a satisfying rate. Meyer’s portrait of the bold, groundbreaking painter should inspire young artists and historical fiction lovers alike. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
