No one ever seemed to notice Lady Charlotte, not even her family. Ladies in this time period weren't supposed to be artists but Lady Charlotte, while being ignored by everyone, was able to develop her talent for painting. No one knew. If only she could be accepted into the Royal Academy. But rarely did ladies get to go there. Just as she thought it was hopeless, someone at Haverhall School for Young Ladies helps her get in. Now it's up to Charlotte to make this dream work. She went to the extreme. She became "Charlie". Yes, she made herself look like a man. A man had better chances of succeeding, especially in the fine arts. Charlotte or now known as "Charlie" becomes partners with another person who has the dream of becoming an artist, Flynn Rutledge. What a shock is in store for Flynn! The author showed how women had it much harder back in the day than men. The book shows how women sometimes had to resort to unusual tactics in order to achieve their dreams. It didn't seem to me that Charlotte tried very hard to make her wishes known to her family. Perhaps her family would have paid more attention if she stood up for what she wanted. It would have been worth a try. I do wish there had been a bit more background on both Charlotte and Flynn. I just couldn't connect with either one of them. They didn't seem realistic to me.
I received a copy of this book from Night Owl Reviews and voluntarily decided to review it.
I would give this book 3 STARS.
