I read this one about two and a half years ago and was very impressed with Watson's lyrical style of writing. I still have some of the visuals he created. Bought for trade or release.

From the Publisher
Ned Weaver, an internationally acclaimed painter, is famous in Door County, Wisconsin, for his luminous work - and for his affairs with his models. His wife, Harriet, has learned to accept these dalliances in the belief that his immense talent will ultimately make up for his shortcomings as a husband.
Sonja Skordahl, a Norwegian immigrant, came to America looking for a new life. Instead, she married Henry House, only to find herself defined, like so many other mid-twentieth-century women, by her roles as wife and mother. As circumstances and destiny land Sonja in Ned's studio, she becomes more than his model and more than the object of his desire - she becomes the most inspiring muse Ned has ever known. When both Ned and Henry insist on possessing her, their jealousies threaten to erupt into violence, and Sonja must find a way to placate both men without sacrificing her hard-won sense of self.

I didn't have the time to read it until now and since my 'to be read' pile of books is getting bigger and bigger every passing day i decided to let this one free again. So yesterday afternoon i gave the book to a friend who's taking it with her on her way back to Turkey. It's yours now (you know who you are) so i hope you'll enjoy reading it!
