Thanks to Kathy with ebooks for Review for an ecopy of the book in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts are my own.

Twilight Zone was my first thought when I finished the book in the hour it took to read! It’s not mainstay contemporary. It makes you think and feel. It's sad, sweet and very holidayish!

I felt pity and sad for Henry who seemed to be okay with his sad and lonely life. His only friend tried to help him enjoy life but he was only ever interested in the painting that he has obsessed over for the past twenty years that was in the museum he worked at. He was happy with his life, he just wanted the woman in the painting.

I liked Henry’s passion for art. He also was a painter and he was good at it. In fact, very very good!!

In the end, though, I wasn’t sure if I was happy or sad with how it ended. It seemed to be good for Henry though!
