"The Sidewalk Artist"

I just finished this novel. While it's not a monumental book, and won't be added to my 'top 10' list, it was a delightful vacation book to read on the train to/from NYC.

It's a sweet romantic story, involving a young woman vacationing in Europe and her mysterious romance with a sidewalk artist named Raphael that she meets while there. It has a parallel story about the artist Raphael, and while I've never been a big Renaissance fanatic, I learned a lot about him and found a new appreciation for Raphael's lovely artwork while reading this book.


  1. I think I'd read it just because the cover design is so intriguing:)
