In her acclaimed novels, Susan Vreeland has given us portraits of painting and life that are as dazzling as their artistic subjects. Now, in The Forest Lover , she traces the courageous life and career of Emily Carr, who'more than Georgia O?Keeffe or Frida Kahlo'blazed a path for modern women artists. Overcoming the confines of Victorian culture, Carr became a major force in modern art by capturing an untamed British Columbia and its indigenous peoples just before industrialization changed them forever. From illegal potlatches in tribal communities to artists? studios in pre?World War I Paris, Vreeland tells her story with gusto and suspense, giving us a glorious novel that will appeal to lovers of art, native cultures, and lush historical fiction.

A very powerful and engaging novel about the struggles and achievements of Emily Carr, a Canadian artist far ahead of her time. It deserves five stars.

While reading this novel I became a fan of the painter Emily Carr. She is the main character, independent and seeks solace in nature.
