Product Details


“Meyer’s detailed fictionalized biography…is an interesting glimpse into early- and mid-20th-century America and the life of a complex woman. Meyer has researched O’Keeffe’s life intensively and…the narrator’s voice rings true…budding romantics and artists should appreciate this work. A useful selection for art history and women’s studies units.” – School Library Journal

“This first-person historical fiction title is told in Georgia O’Keefe’s own voice. O’Keefe was ahead of her time, knowing from a young age that she wanted to be an artist, keep the surname O’Keefe, and adorn herself in black. This book is not the typical young adult or crowd-pleaser fiction. The novel will especially appeal to those interested in art, artists, or strong women who ‘break the mold.’ Brief mention of O’Keefe’s contemporaries in the art and photography world add helpful historical information. The author’s notes and Stieglitz’s photos of a young and mature woman help provide context. The novel is readable, informative, and may also appeal to art teachers as a reading choice in the content area.” –School Library Connection

“Lovers of historical fiction will…enjoy this tale.” –VOYA

“Georgia O’Keeffe’s life and artistic development are chronicled in Meyer’s latest work of historical fiction…Georgia comes to life in Meyer’s portrait (and)… the pace moves along at a satisfying rate. Meyer’s portrait of the bold, groundbreaking painter should inspire young artists and historical fiction lovers alike.” –Booklist
