Review: The Masterpiece

The Masterpiece The Masterpiece by Fiona Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love historical fiction, especially when the main character (in both the 1920s and 1970s) is a strong woman. In this story, one is an artist; one is learning who she is after a divorce and other traumatic events.

One of the underlying themes is how women are treated differently. It was so blatant in the '20s that people "in the know" in the art world didn't think a woman artist's work would sell -- despite the fact she was a successful illustrator for Vogue magazine and designer for Studebaker.

In the 1970s portion, the woman learns Grand Central Terminal is in danger of having a skyscraper built on top of it and she wants to help (along with Jackie Onassis) stop that.

Grand Central -- and the Grand Central School of Art -- are where the two parts of the story come together.
