Lisette's List: a novel by Susan Vreeland
From Susan Vreeland, bestselling author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue, comes a richly imagined story of a woman's awakening to the power of art, to the beauty of provincial life, and to love in the midst of war.
In 1937, young Lisette Roux and her husband move from Paris to a village in Provence to care for his grandfather. Pascal, who once worked in the nearby ochre mines, became a pigment salesman and frame maker, and befriended Pissarro and Cezanne. Pascal begins to tutor Lisette in both art and life. Inspired by Pascal's advice to "do the important things first," Lisette begins a list of vows to herself.
