Publisher's Summary

When troubled artist Rachel Kelly dies, she leaves behind an extraordinary body of work - but for her family there is a legacy of secrets and painful revelations. To her children she is both curse and blessing, as they cope with the inheritance of her passions - and demons. Only their father's gift of stillness can withstand Rachel's destructive influence and the suspicion that her family came second to her art. Piecing together the clues of her life - as artist, lover, mother, wife and patient - takes the listener from Cornwall to Canada across a span of 40 years. What emerges is a tender story of enduring love and a portrait of a family coping with the sometimes too dazzling brilliance of a genius.

    "What a treat!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely recommended! A very rich story that pokes and prods around in a deliciously candid way. Very enjoyable read / listen.


    What other book might you compare Notes from an Exhibition to and why?

    Any book that is dense with character dissection. Any story spanning across at least two lifetimes. Any good piece of fiction that forces you to think.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Did not have a favorite scene. I liked learning the individual characters from different perspectives.


    If you could rename Notes from an Exhibition, what would you call it?

    I'm afraid Pictures at an Exhibition is already taken. Pause pause
    I would not rename it. The title is aptly chosen.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes! I love Joan Walker's narration and she has quickly become a favorite to listen to. I inhale audiobooks and she is a gem. I like her cadence and ability to know and understand the characters. Again, highly recommended!
