Kat Lind, an American expatriate living in London with her entrepreneur husband and their young son, attends an opening at a prestigious Mayfair art gallery and is astonished to find her own face on the walls. The portraits are evidence of a long-ago love affair with the artist, Daniel Blake. Unbeknownst to her, he has continued to paint her ever since. Kat is seduced by her reflection on canvas and when Daniel appears in London, she finds herself drawn back into the sins and solace of a past that suddenly no longer seems so far away. When the portraits catch the attention of the public, threatening to reveal not only her identity, but all that lies beyond the edges of the canvases, Kat comes face to face with the true price of their beauty and with all that she now could lose. Moving between the glamour of the London art world and the sensuous days of a love affair in a dusty Paris studio, life and art bleed together as Daniel and Kat's lives spin out of control, leading to a conclusion that is anything but inevitable, in Mary Waters-Sayer's The Blue Bath.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“(The descriptions of the artist at work are so intense that readers will almost smell the paint…When Kat’s husband returns, she must face life-altering decisions and events. Set in London and Paris, Water-Sayer’s romantic debut novel is filled with lush settings, sensuous details, and poignant events. Readers will be wholly involved with Kat’s heartbreaking dilemma.” Booklist
“An elegant debut. With keen sensitivity and insight, Mary Waters-Sayer explores the shifting landscape between love and betrayal; nostalgia and regret; the desire to keep secrets, and the longing to be seen.” Jennifer duBois, author of Cartwheel
“Layered in juxtapositions—stability and indulgence, nostalgia and regret, love and passion—this novel captivates, revealing the story’s subtleties one brushstroke at a time…The passion that builds is emotionally captivating, and the unexpected ending is redeeming.” RT Book Reviews
