This is an interesting novel. It weaves back and forth, between the past and the present. There are paintings which connect the young woman who found one of the paintings in a thrift store, to the unknown painter from the past. It's a mystery the present day woman is eager to solve.

This novel also discusses with the working conditions that the "radium girls" experienced. It was a horrifying experience given the number of women who died from radium exposure. No one knew at that time how dangerous radium actually was. Marie Curie herself died of exposure to radioactive ores which caused aplastic anemia (or possibly leukemia).
