Her father is begging her to return to Philadelphia to find a husband before it is too late, her sister Lydia is falling mysteriously ill, and worse, Mary is beginning to doubt herself. Then one evening a friend introduces her to Edgar Degas and her life changes forever. Years later she will learn that he had begged for the introduction, but in that moment their meeting seems a miracle. So begins the defining period of her life and the most tempestuous of relationships.</p><p>In<em> I Always Loved You</em>, <a href="http://www.robinoliveira.com/">Robin Oliveira</a> brilliantly re-creates the irresistible world of Belle Époque Paris, writing with grace and uncommon insight into the passion and foibles of the human heart.</p><p> Thu, 13 Feb 2014 16:12:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 83735 at http://wamc.org "I Always Loved You" By Robin Oliveira The Arkell Museum at Canajoharie http://wamc.org/post/arkell-museum-canajoharie <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><em>From Giverny to the Brooklyn Bridge: American Impressionist Paintings from the Arkell Collections</em> is currently on display at<a href="http://www.arkellmuseum.org" style="line-height: 1.5;"> The Arkell Museum</a> in Canajoharie.
