Historical Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Listeners who enjoy stories about strong, independent women will be captivated by Anne-Marie Piazza's delightful portrayal of Mimi, a laundress and circus girl who inhabits the gritty world of 1860s Paris. Working girl Mimi beguiles the artist Edouard Manet, but she dreams of becoming a painter in her own right. Piazza captures Mimi's charm, as well as her determination to recover her lost daughter. For Manet and his friends, Piazza successfully changes to a lower register and a more cultured tone as they discuss art in the cafes of Montmartre. Based loosely on actual characters, this story transports listeners to a fairy-tale Paris in the springtime, with its picnics by the Seine and absinthe-fueled nights.
