Resumen:

The Fountain of St. James Court, or, Portrait of the Artist as an Old Woman :

New York Times bestselling author Sena Jeter Naslund explores the lives of successful creative women--their devotion to work and family; their fears; their loves--in an enthralling novel that resonates across time and place

It's midnight on St. James Court, in which stands a fountain sculpture of Venus rising from the sea. Kathryn Callaghan has just finished a draft of her novel about renowned painter íƒâ€°lisabeth VigíƒÂ©e-Le Brun, a survivor of the French Revolution. Kathryn remains haunted by íƒâ€°lisabeth's experiences--revealed here in a novel-within-a-novel, interleaved with the chronicle of one day in Kathryn's life. Despite being separated by time, place, and culture, Kathryn and íƒâ€°lisabeth possess similar gifts and burdens. And before another midnight arrives, Kathryn will confront personal danger as frightening as that which íƒâ€°lisabeth faced during the Reign of Terror. Each woman will be called upon and tested; each will, like Venus, rise triumphantly above the expectations of her world.
