Keeping the World Away: A Novel
Title: Keeping the World Away: A Novel
Author: Margaret Forster
An intimate painting of a quiet corner of an attic room, created by Gwen, Rodin’s lover, has a profound influence on several women whose lives it touches, including Gwen and Charlotte, a dreamy Edwardian intellectual.
A classic Margaret Forster novel with the same satisfying appeal as her bestselling Diary of an Ordinary Woman — the story of an actual early 20th century painting and its fictional adventures through the century and of the women whose lives it touches.
