Publisher's summary:While growing in confidence as a photographer, eighteen-year-old Jessie Ann Gaebele’s personal life is at a crossroads. Hoping she’s put an unfortunate romantic longing behind her as “water under the bridge,” she exiles herself to
to operate photographic studios for those owners who have fallen ill with mercury poisoning. Milwaukee
Jessie gains footing in her dream to one day operate her own studio and soon finds herself in other
Midwesttowns, pursuing her profession. But even a job she loves can’t keep painful memories from seeping into her heart when the shadows of a forbidden love threaten to darken the portrait of her life.
This was one of those books that I picked up and found myself finishing the very next day... the characters drew me in immediately. Jessie's internal struggles as she tries to put the past behind her are so real, and something everyone can relate to in some way. The author's writing style is very easy to read, descriptive without being overly focused on every detail. I'll probably be looking for more books by this author the next time I visit the library.
