Book Description:

It’s the 1980s, and art historian Claire Markham reels from a series of heartbreaking losses. Desperate to escape her shattered reality, she becomes an art guide in Europe for quirky stranger Viv Chancey and embarks on a life-changing journey through the art-filled cities of Milan, Venice, Ravenna, Florence, Siena, Rome, and Paris.

Once abroad, Claire tries to hide her woes by focusing on Viv’s art education, but Viv—who is not who she seems—has a different learning experience in mind. Frustrated and wanting to reimagine her life, Claire embraces the idea of reality as illusion and finds herself slipping into the tales of art and history.

When threatened with one more crushing loss, Claire must learn from the spirit of her eccentric companion and the lessons from the art they encounter to take charge of her life or lose the most precious thing in it.

The Art of Traveling Strangers is a journey of self-discovery and personal empowerment inspired by the great art masterpieces of Italy and France. It’s a tale of female bonding and the amazing powers of perception. After all, reality, like art, is just an illusion.

My Review: 

The Art of Traveling Strangers is the first book I have read by author Zoe Disigny. I thought it was a good read. As a former art student and eventual graduate, I appreciate the art aspect throughout the book. It was interesting how the author was able to weave it into Claire’s life. I adored taking this journey with her into the beautiful cities that I have always wanted to visit, such as, Milan, Venice, Ravenna, Florence, Siena, Rome, and Paris. Oh what a life changing adventure that had to have been. I have to admit I was not sure of Claire in the beginning of the book, but by the third of the way through, she grew on me and I enjoyed seeing herself grow and mature as a young woman. It was entertaining to see what she saw, who she met and what she learned along the way. 

The Art of Traveling Strangers will be getting three and a half stars from me. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading fiction that takes them to different places around the world. I will be looking out for more releases by Zoe Disigny to see what else she has in store for readers. This one is worth a read and a nice way to spend an afternoon.

I received a hard cover copy of The Art of Traveling Strangers from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
