With her mother dead of the plague, and her beloved brother newly married, Cornelia must manage her father's household, though he teeters on the brink of madness. She knows that among Amsterdam's elite circles, people are gossiping about her father's fading artistic genius--and about her, too. Yet there are two young men who seem unfazed by the slander- and very much intrigued by Cornelia. Set within the vibrant community of the 17th century Dutch Masters, I Am Rembrandt's Daughter is a moving coming of age story filled with family drama and a love triangle that would make Jane Austen proud.

A wind comes blowing, bringing another new day with each breaking dawn. Another day of toil, and oftentimes tribulation, mixed with affection for the land upon which he lives and works, the cowhand's existence is a bond between nature and the folks he has come to know and respect. His very existence is the epitome of a freedom that most folks will never know, but merely dream of. These are the heart-rending tales of life in southeastern Wyoming, living and working with ranchers and ranch hands, cowboys and cowpokes, and the occasional suburbanite in search of the real west. The edge of civilization rises on a near horizon and with its arrival ushers the end of a western heritage and the cowboy culture that few outsiders will ever comprehend. Written with truthfulness and candor, the author weaves a tapestry of stories and personal experiences, forever mindful of the fabric of life that holds this vanishing and fragile rural society together. Provocative, this is a perspective unlike any other ever presented. Anguish . . . coupled with brutal honesty and compassion for the working ranch hand in the American west, this is a brotherhood of understanding.

Rembrandt is indisputably the greatest artist of the seventeenth century, and many would say the greatest artist of all time. His mastery of composition, paint, and lineÑhe was a superlative etcherÑover a lifetimeÕs work has rarely been emulated, let alone surpassed. At a time when other artists specialized, his themes covered history, pastoral and Biblical scenes, group paintings, and most celebrated of all, portraits. Although excruciately little is known about RembrandtÕs personal thoughts and musingsÑhe had no contemporary biographer and left no letters or diaryÑhe did leave over 90 authenticated selfportraits, which offer the details of his outward appearance as he progressed from a young adult to an elderly man. For the majority of his life, Rembrandt enjoyed success and wealth as he catered to the artistic proclivities of the wealthy Dutch merchants in Amsterdam, but personal and financial tragedy dogged him as well. Forced to declare bankruptcy a decade before he died, he continued painting to pay the bills, creating some of his most noteworthy works of art in the process.

Louisa and Clem: two sisters who love each other more the further they move apart Louisa is the elder one, the conscientious student, precise and careful, who yearns for a good marriage, a career, a family. Clem, the archetypal younger sibling, is the rebel: uncontainable, iconoclastic, committed to her work but not to the men who fall for her. Alternating between their voices, I See You Everywhere opens when the sisters are in their early twenties and unfolds through their lives in a vivid, heart-rending story of what we can and cannot do for those we love. Their complex bond, Louisa observes, is 'like a double helix, two souls coiling around a common axis, joined yet never touching.' Alive with the same sensual detail and riveting characterization that marks Julia Glass's previous novels, I See You Everywhere is a powerful and moving double portrait that reveals the very nature of sisterhood.
