Born into a wealthy Parisian family at the center of Belle
Epoque society, 18-year-old Aimée Savaray dreams of becoming
a respected painter in the male-dominated art world; and
secretly, she also dreams of being loved by Henri, the boy
her parents took in as a child and raised alongside her.
But when Henri inexplicably disappears, in the midst of the
Franco-Prussian war, the Savarays’ privileged lives begin to
unravel. Heartbroken, Aimée tries to find him, but Henri
doesn’t want to be found―and only one member of the family
As Aimée seeks refuge in the art world, mentored by the
Impressionist Édouard Manet, she unwittingly finds her way
back to Henri. With so many years gone by and secrets
buried, their eventual reunion unmasks the lies that once
held the family together, but now threaten to tear them apart.
A rich and opulent saga, GIRL IN THE AFTERNOON brings the
Impressionists to life in this portrait of scandal, fortune,
and unrequited love.
