The Night Portrait (by Laura Morelli) … interesting read about stolen art during WWII

Once again I have gotten lost in a dual timeline historical fiction book based in WWII. The characters are really well developed and the author has managed to weave the story in a fluid manner. While the storyline itself is fiction, the fact that the painting by da Vinci being stolen during WWII is accurate. The amount of art which was stolen and eventually lost during Hitler’s reign of terror is appalling. The author’s notes provide additional background information that added to the enjoyment of reading this book.

Thank you to NetGalley and William Morrow Paperbacks for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
