Publisher's Summary

Georgia O'Keeffe, her love affair with photographer Alfred Stieglitz, and her quest to become an independent artist come vividly to life in this sensual and exquisitely written novel, a dazzling departure into historical fiction by the acclaimed novelist Dawn Tripp.

This is not a love story. If it were, we would have the same story. But he has his, and I have mine.

In 1916, Georgia O'Keeffe is a young, unknown art teacher when she travels to New York to meet Stieglitz, the famed photographer and art dealer, who has discovered O'Keeffe's work and exhibits it in his gallery. Their connection is instantaneous. O'Keeffe is quickly drawn into Stieglitz's sophisticated world, becoming his mistress, protégé, and muse, as their attraction deepens into an intense and tempestuous relationship and his photographs of her, both clothed and nude, create a sensation.

Yet as her own creative force develops, Georgia begins to push back against what critics and others are saying about her and her art. And soon, she must make difficult choices to live a life she believes in.

A breathtaking work of the imagination, Georgia is the story of a passionate young woman, her search for love and artistic freedom, the sacrifices she will face, and the bold vision that will make her a legend.

What the Critics Say

"I devoured this dazzling novel about an American icon. Dawn Tripp brings Georgia O'Keeffe so fully to life on every page and, with great wisdom, examines the very nature of love, longing, femininity, and art." (J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times best-selling author of Maine and The Engagements)

"In this masterly novel, Dawn Tripp erases the boundary between writer and character, bringing O'Keefe's voice, essence, and vision to life. Georgia is a dazzling, brilliant work about the struggle between artist and woman, between self and the other, between love and the necessity to break free of it. The luminous sensuality of the writing glows from every page, drawing the reader into the splendor and machinations of the New York City art world between the wars, revealing both Georgia O'Keeffe and Dawn Tripp as the great artists they are." (B. A. Shapiro, New York Times best-selling author of The Art Forger andThe Muralist)

"Georgia O'Keeffe's life became legendary even as she was living it, something she both invited and fought against. This is the fascinating tension at the heart of Dawn Tripp's novel - a book that, like O'Keeffe's paintings, is lush and rigorous, bold and subtle, sensual, cranky, deeply felt, and richly imagined." (Joan Wickersham, author of The News from Spain)

    Story
    "Titillating and Brilliant"
    If you could sum up Georgia in three words, what would they be?

    Senual, Bold, Suspenseful


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Georgia?

    Georgia's Handling of the Mural Job in NYC without Steiglitz's help.


    What does Ann Marie Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her emphasis of Tripp's beautiful sentences have just the right touch.


    Who was the most memorable character of Georgia and why?

    Georgia: she was a trail-blazing female artist who has yet to get her due in the artistic canon!


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this gorgeous and intoxicating read about not just a love story between to iconic artists, but a woman's drive to realize, protect and pursue her dream despite an unwelcoming world for a devoted artistic woman.

    Story
    "Disappointing - trashy romance novel"

    Half way through and I'm returning this.
    I thought this would be a story of O'Keeffe and her art, instead it's mainly about her relationship with Stieglitz. I wanted to read about her art and not her sex life.
    This books takes an interesting artist and turns her into a simpering housewife.

    I also disliked the narration, O'Keeffe is in her 20s as this book starts and the narrator sounds like a frail, confused old lady.
    I love books about art and artists and this misses the mark on all counts for me

    Story
    "Georgia:talented artist whose art developed in conjunction with her womanhood."

    Her love for Alfred S allowed him to dominate her art. He was narcissistic in that he was first and foremost. She tolerated his infidelities because she depended on his management skills. At one point, it seemed that he used her art to further his photography. When he died, she gained control and became miraculously independent and told one of his lovers to take her work out of Georgia's gallery.

    So often, I observe women who assume the dependent role with their significant others and when separated, they mature or simply show that they are capable after all. This dependent role seems necessary in many relationships.

    Narrator's voice was childlike in the beginning, annoyingly so! As Georgia aged, voice was more mature, perhaps to portray Georgia as immature in earlier years.
