Dear Librarians,

Sometimes it's a place, other times it's a person that inspires a book. With THE LIBRARY OF LIGHT AND SHADOW it was an image of a beautiful young woman wearing a blindfold and holding a paintbrush.... and I had the idea of a woman who closed her eyes and drew portraits of her sitter's secrets. 

Travel with me to New York in 1925 and then to the South of France, with some days in Paris along the way. A starred Library Journal Review said: "The sophisticated and finely detailed narrative and exquisite storytelling draws readers into an esoteric post-World War I, art deco era. Yet it's the compassionate and articulate narrator who brings this heartbreaking but hopeful story to life. Unforgettable."

I hope you like my new novel and thank you so so much for supporting me for so many years and novels.

Cheers and Happy Reading,
M.J. Rose
