Artistic temperaments sparkle in this fictionalized account of painter Georgia O'Keeffe's relationship with photographer Alfred Steiglitz. Ann Marie Lee's capable performance of this accessible yet informative novel captures the drama of the developing relationship between the two and how each contributed to the other's influence on art and history. The simple and vivid prose is rendered into drama as Lee enunciates enthusiastically and falls into whispers for emphasis. At times, the plot slows to a distracting pace, only to leap forward and leave the listener wondering about important details that seem to be missing. Other times, Lee's intensity seems unwarranted by the text. On the whole, however, this audiobook and its narrator illuminate one of the art world's most intriguing alliances.
