Rachel's mother, a pillar of their small refugee community of Jews who escaped the Inquisition, has never forgiven her daughter for being a difficult girl who refuses to live by the rules. But Rachel's life is not her own. To save her father's business, she is married off to a widower with three children. When her husband dies suddenly and his handsome, much younger nephew, Frédéric, arrives from France to settle the estate, Rachel seizes her own life story, beginning a defiant, passionate love affair that sparks a scandal that affects all of her family, including her favorite son, Camille Pissarro, who will become one of the greatest artists of France., Historical fiction., Hoffman, Alice,author,narrator., Hoffman, Alice,author., Hoffman, Alice., Includes bibliographical references (page 369)., Includes bibliographical references (page 558)., Jewish families, LP FIC HISTORY HOFFMAN, Large type books., Love stories., MOM9465086BT0016001164L41592000000ACPL33021027108973, MOM9465086BT0016001164L41592000000ACPL33021027108981, Man-woman relationships, New York :Simon & Schuster,2015., PS3558.O3447M37 2015, PS3558.O3447M37 2015ab, PS3558.O3447M37 2015b, Pissarro, Camille,1830-1903, Read by Gloria Reuben, Tina Benko and Santino Fontana, with an afterword read by the author., Reuben, Gloria,1964-narrator., Romance fiction., Saint Thomas (United States Virgin Islands : Island), Saint Thomas (United States Virgin Islands), Scandals, Subtitle from container., TRACSengrdaTRACSBTCTABDXTEFOCLCOTEFMTJAOOCLCOJP3, The marriage of opposites /Alice Hoffman., The marriage of opposites :a novel /Alice Hoffman., The marriage of oppositesa novel /Alice Hoffman., Thorndike, Maine :Center Point Large Print,2015., Unabridged., Widows, [New York] :Simon & Schuster,[2015]., audio, audio disc, audio fileCD audio, digitaloptical, large print, nwvi---, pcc, spoken word, text, texttxt, unmediated, unmediatedn, volume, volumenc, ©2015
