Praise for WATER LILY DANCE:

"A brilliantly penned and original novel showcasing the extraordinary talent and genuine flair of a distinctive narrative storytelling style . . . An absorbing and inherently riveting read from beginning to end . . ."  - Midwest Book Review

"Missouri, 2014: 'I have to find what's missing so I can move beyondthose memories, find what they stole from me, what I lost. Maybe that'swhy it's called loss.' This is the core of Sophie Noel's journey in this warm, passionate, and life-changing story. Sophie is the daughter of afamous artist, Josephine du Lue, and both are obsessed with ClaudeMonet's art and his famous Water Lily Garden. Paris, 1865: It's alsoabout Camille, Monet's wife, a woman torn between her needs and the love of the man who preferred to be alone, so enmeshed was he in the art hewas creating, an art that moved beyond the acceptance or rejection ofParis's famous Salon Judges. Light and color are everything to thesethree women. . . . Muriel's novel lets readers dance and drink with them in the famous Mirabelle ball of Paris, enjoy the talks and fun withfriends Renoir and Bazille, and visit Monet's exhibitions with Sophie,beauty personified. Imagination is at the heart of this superb novel, imagination that builds, rends, and immortalizes. Muriel offers a story beyond words - exquisitely sad, loving, and healing historical fiction." - Historical Novel Society

". . . a fantastic air of reinvention to this deeply emotional and sensitive tale . . . it was the characters at the very heart which draw you in and keep you reading, superbly developed and likable as they are. Water Lily Dance is a highly recommended read." 5 stars!  - Readers' Favorite

"Author Michelle Muriel delights readers once again . . . Water Lily Dance is more than a mere novel that happens to revolve around an Impressionist artist. It is a wonderfully written . . . moving portrayal of the strength and resilience of women . . . Michelle Muriel's writing is so vividly descriptive throughout the entire story, that I too felt as if I could hear Claude Monet and his contemporaries whispering in my ear. . . . a beautifully moving story about women, love, grief and overcoming adversity; a story that should not be missed." - Feathered Quill Book Reviews

Praise for the bestselling fiction of MICHELLE MURIEL:

“Impressively well written from beginning to end, Essie’s Roses is an inherently absorbing and skillfully presented read, establishing author Michelle Muriel as an exceptionally talented novelist.” — Midwest Book Review

“Michelle Muriel’s tremendously impressive debut centers on the experiences of four remarkable women... Her characters are vividly drawn, and the many period details – social, linguistic, and even literary – with which she fleshes out her story never feel forced or melodramatic. A richly moving reading experience.” — Historical Novel Society

“...all I can say is – wow, what an amazing read. Michelle Muriel has penned a wonderfully moving work of fiction – and one that will leave no reader with a dry eye. I look forward to reading future works by this author. Five stars!” — Feathered Quill Book Reviews

The greatest loss we may ever experience is that of ourselves.

From the author of the award-winning, bestselling Essie’s Roses comes an imaginative, emotional portrait of the secret side of grief and the deep bonds and secrets between mothers and children. Three women centuries apart set out to escape a colorless life, connected by one of the most controversial, beloved artists in the world: Claude Monet. But at what cost?

Missouri, 2014. Sophie Noel, an emerging artist and daughter of renowned artist Josephine de Lue, holds an extraordinary imagination, but a year after the unexpected deaths of her father and husband, she cannot imagine a way to "move on" from loss—or the buried childhood memory trying to resurface that would have torn her family apart. To cope with grief and the temptation to leave it all behind, Sophie escapes into a painted world of color and light venting her anxiety to an old childhood friend—an imaginary one: French Impressionist artist, Claude Monet.

Paris, 1865. Camille Doncieux is captivated by the rebirth of Paris and the rebellious artists who wage war against tradition and the government's censorship at the annual art exhibition at the Paris Salon. Behind the windows of her father's luxurious dress shop, Camille plots a rebellion of her own after meeting three bold artists who will change her life forever: Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, and Frédéric Bazille. But in Paris, where a young woman's life is ordered and controlled, a family secret and Camille's quest for love and fame may cost her everything, perhaps even the man she loves.

From an eclectic town in Missouri to the stunning backdrop of 19th-century Paris at the height of the Impressionist art movement, Water Lily Dance is a heartbreaking, heart-mending tale of loss, love, and second chances.
