Reviews

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR LEONORA IN THE MORNING LIGHT

"A fascinating read that offers insights into the dreamlike work of the artist. . . Michaela Carter's rich prose pulled me in, and her haunting portrait of Leonora Carrington kept me turning pages." --Nancy Horan, New York Times bestselling author of Under the Wide and Starry Sky and Loving Frank

"Gorgeously written, meticulously researched. . . . Michaela Carter's poetic style and vivid prose swept me up into this fascinating and beautifully woven story of love and war and art." --Jillian Cantor, USA Today bestselling author of In Another Time and Half Life

"Michaela Carter invokes the bohemian intrigues of artistic pre-WWII Paris, and the terrors that ensued, in her riveting story of Leonora Carrington's tumultuous affair with celebrated painter, Max Ernst. . . . Vivid and colorful as her canvases, this novel depicts the conflicted heart of an artist, and a survivor who refused to admit defeat." --C.W. Gortner, internationally bestselling author of Mademoiselle Chane

"Michaela Carter's training as a poet and painter shines through from the first page of this vivid, gorgeous novel based on the lives of Leonora Carrington and Max Ernst. Told with all the wild magic and mystery of the Surrealists themselves, Leonora in the Morning Light fearlessly illuminates the life and work of a formidable female artist." --Whitney Scharer, author of The Age of Light

"An extraordinarily researched historical novel about the romance--and heartbreak--shared by Surrealists Leonora Carrington and Max Ernst at the dawn of WWII, Leonora in the Morning Light is both imaginative and riveting. With little prior knowledge of Carrington and her work, I became consumed by her story, as portrayed in Michaela Carter's poetic, captivating narrative." --Cynthia Swanson, New York Times bestselling author of The Bookseller and The Glass Forest

"Michaela Carter's brilliant new novel is a fully imagined portrait of the sexual and artistic coming of age of a Great Woman. Leonora in the Morning Light is breathtaking and bold, formidably well researched and entrancingly beautiful." --Kate Christensen, PEN/Faulkner award-winning author of The Great Man and The Last Cruise
