Susan Vreeland Author- LISETTE’S LIST

Hard Back Cover for Lisette's List a new novel by Susan Vreeland

Open the cover and enjoy “the sun-dappled, fruit scented Provençal landscape.”

Cameo appearances by Marc and Bella Chagall, indirect recollections of Cézanne and Pissarro, and a drole conversation between their wives fleshes out the art connection, while World War II, the Nazi Occupation, the mystery of the hidden paintings, and Lisette’s complex relationships with men are kept solidly in view.

The Reader’s Guide includes provocative discussion questions. I’m happy to do phone chats with book clubs. Email Susan Vreeland directly, susan@svreeland.comto set up a date. Please enjoy the many photos of Provence and the paintings featured in the book athttp://www.svreeland.com/ll-intro.html and subsequent website pages.

You’ve already read it? Wonderful. Consider giving a paperback version to a friend, and check out “How to Support the Books You Love,”

Devotely Susan
