A Light of Her Own

We rated this book:


In 1633 Holland, a woman’s ambition has no place. Judith is a painter, dodging whispers of murder and the law, becoming the first women admitted to prestigious Haarlem artists guild. Maria, a Catholic, in a country where her faith is banned, hoping to find a lost saint’s relic. Both women will be shaped by ambition while running to counter Hollands most powerful men, whose plans spell certain disaster.

A Light of Her Own had me walking down the city with the characters, from the churches, the markets, the smells, and the port, as well as watching Marias and Judith’s struggles and how they overcame their struggles, and how hard it was to do so. The author weaved a beautiful tale of struggle, love, and loss, as life as a woman living in 1633 Holland, and how they struggled. A Light of Her Own is weaved with history, as well as the truth of the past and how the past shaped the choices for women in Holland, no matter how small the changes were, after all, the smallest changes shape the future.
