Publisher's Summary

A defiant woman in pre-World War I Germany carves out her own unconventional destiny as the enthralling Photographer’s Saga continues.

Germany, 1911. Certain things are expected of a woman. Defiant Mimi Reventlow has chosen to be the woman she wants to be. For now, that’s the resident, if temporary, photographer in Laichingen. Here, against the odds, in a vocation uncommon for her gender, she maintains a struggling studio. She cares for her aging uncle and mentor. She’s captured the affections of a roguish young local. And she dares to engage in a secret affair with Johann, the village’s prodigal son. 

But when tragedy strikes, Mimi’s world is thrown into a state of flux. Remain in a place she calls home? Stay loyal to the man she loves? Or follow her true calling, on the road, as a photographer of roving independence? 

Through dizzying betrayals, breathtaking new passions - both personal and professional - and the rumors of war, Mimi’s next choice could change her life once again. So could the risks. But as Mimi knows, taking risks is at the heart of all women who dream of a future.

Great Follow-up

AN ARTIFICIAL LIGHT picks up right where THE PHOTOGRAPHER left off. Set in the early 1900's this story follows Mimi who has set out to be a traveling photographer in a profession dominated by males. Her career takes a turn off the path when she sets aside her career to care for her ailing uncle who has been her mentor.

Narrator Kathleen Gati is flawless in bringing life to Mimi as well as the many townspeople who are part of the story.

Fortunately, there are hints that Mimi's story may continue with a third book!!!
