Based on a true story and read by skilled narrator Xe Sands, this coming-of-age novel commemorates Italian painter Artemisia Gentileschi. Early on, Sands entwines notes of patience and wistfulness into Artemisia's voice as the girl spends her days studying her father's trade and reminiscing about her mother's empowering bedtime tales. Listeners will quickly be swept away by the steady rhythm of Sands's words as she reveals Artemisia's life through captivating free verse. After Artemisia is raped by her tutor, Sands's tone shifts from an innocent teen's to a desperate woman's, one who is seeking to remedy her brokenness and is determined to not be silenced by shame or society's view of her. Sands's extraordinary performance throughout this painful yet victorious story is not to be missed. V.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
