The Marriage of Opposites

510Xm0djJXLI haven’t read an Alice Hoffman for a while. I really liked her books for a long time and then I got tired of the fantasy element. The Marriage of Opposites read more like an Isabelle Allende to me than an Alice Hoffman. It took me a little while to get into it, but once I did, I very much enjoyed the middle of the story. It slowed down again, though, at the end, and I struggled to finish. It took too long to realize that it was the story of Camille Pissarro and by then, I was more interested in his mother’s life, which was in the background. Overall, I can’t recommend this one.
