Written by on March 20, 2017 in Competitions

This is a story of love and passion set in Paris at the end of the 19th century. It’s the age of the Belle Epoque, a  time of great advancements in science, technology and innovations in the arts – visual, literary, theatre and music.  Artists flocked to the city of light, lured by  history, beauty and exciting opportunities, making Paris the centre of the art world

The Art of Rebellion

In the book, art is Gabrielle’s passion but her parents have other plans for her future – marriage to a man three times her age who holds nothing but disdain for art. Gabrielle is determined to escape life as the baron’s trophy wife and the confinement of traditional roles. She flees her privileged home in the French countryside for Paris and the grandmother who understands her passion. When she cannot locate her grandmother, Gabrielle is left on her own. The art world of Paris, 1900, brims with excitement, opportunity, and risk. Should Gabrielle trust her new friends, or will they take advantage of her hopes and dreams? This beautifully written, lush piece drops you into tumultuous and breathtaking late 19th century Paris.
