This is a literary fictionalized biography As such it does not have a climax It is even and true to life throughout This makes it possibly boring for many people However if you understand that the author Katherine Ashenburg normally writes non fiction then you can perhaps come around to the genius of this storyThe StoryAs opposed to plot this is of a character study Ashenburg bases her main two women and their husbands on two women who actually existed While the names some of the details and events are fictionalized; the core storyline is based on actual events and people The story is split into two perspectives Sofie first and then Cecilia It's a little tedious at times to experience the same event from both sides; but Ashenburg limits the number of times that happens ArtistryThis is not a fast paced story Instead it's very lyrical and literary The way the art is described the people the situations and the thoughts of our characters are all done with a gorgeous literary style that I admire Ashenburg did not lightly write this story and while the pacing is a bit slow; the overall artistry of the story matches up well with the main topic of Swedish art WWIIThis is an odd book that overlaps part of it's timeline with World War II Odd in that the war is a relatively small factor Our main characters mostly live in Sweden which is a neutral unengaged country It was interesting to me to feel what many in the neutral countries might have felt while the whole world was at war This was a very different way to see the war for me and I while it's a small part of the overall story it made a large impact on me OverallIf you are interested in Swedish culture or Swedish art then you are likely to enjoy this book If you don't mind a character study as opposed to exciting events this this is for you Sofie Cecilia is a different type of book but that doesn't make it a poor read I found it to be an interesting read and would merely want others to be aware of what they are getting into at the forefront For this and of my reviews please visit my blog at Epic Reading Please note I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley This is an honest and unbiased review

I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways and have chosen to give my honest opinion about itAlthough this genre of novels is not usually my cup of tea I think I really did enjoy the book Although there were times where I felt it slowed down too much and missed the intensity that often follows many adventure action fantasy thriller or even dramacontemporary books I think that the ideas discussed and contrasted within this book were very intriguing and are what urged me to keep reading That and the lovely setting and timeline and the characters were interesting as well
