Seven portraits. Seven artists. Seven girls and women reading. A young orphan poses nervously for a Renaissance maestro, and a servant girl in 17th-century Amsterdam loses herself in tales of knights and battles. A young woman reading in a bar catches the eye of a young man who takes her picture, and a Victorian medium holds a book that she barely acknowledges while she waits for the exposure. Each chapter takes us into a perfectly imagined tale of how each portrait came to be, and as the connections accumulate, the narrative leads us into the present - and beyond.
