    2. I really enjoyed this first mystery involving John Singer Sargent and Violet Paget I liked the alternating timelines, 1877 with the young John and Violet, and 1539, as Henry VIII and his minions were reforming pillaging,destroying the great abbeys and priories of England, and in particular Glastonbury I m looking forward to the next in the series.
