520    "This is what we long for: the profound pleasure of being 
       swept into vivid new worlds, worlds peopled by characters 
       so intriguing and real that we can't shake them, even long
       after the reading's done. In his earlier, award-winning 
       novels, Dominic Smith demonstrated a gift for coaxing the 
       past to life. Now, in The Last Painting of Sara de Vos, he
       deftly bridges the historical and the contemporary, 
       tracking a collision course between a rare landscape by a 
       female Dutch painter of the golden age, an inheritor of 
       the work in 1950s Manhattan, and a celebrated art 
       historian who painted a forgery of it in her youth. In 
       1631, Sara de Vos is admitted as a master painter to the 
       Guild of St. Luke's in Holland, the first woman to be so 
       recognized. Three hundred years later, only one work 
       attributed to de Vos is known to remain--a haunting winter
       scene, At the Edge of a Wood, which hangs over the bed of 
       a wealthy descendant of the original owner. An Australian 
       grad student, Ellie Shipley, struggling to stay afloat in 
       New York, agrees to paint a forgery of the landscape, a 
       decision that will haunt her. Because now, half a century 
       later, she's curating an exhibit of female Dutch painters,
       and both versions threaten to arrive. As the three threads
       intersect, The Last Painting of Sara de Vos mesmerizes 
       while it grapples with the demands of the artistic life, 
       showing how the deceits of the past can forge the present"
