Becky Farwell was brilliant in math and made money during high school tutoring friends either for money, clothes, or shoes.
Her life wasn't easy, though. Her mother had died, and she was left taking care of her ill father so she felt she couldn't go to college.
What she did do was help her father with his failing business and work as the town's treasurer.
She does some shady things with the town's money because she had developed a love and obsession for art, and you know art is expensive.
We follow Becky from her high school days to her days as an art connoisseur which got her into terrible debt to the town as she skimmed money from the treasurer’s office accounts into a personal account.
I actually liked her even though she was doing things not on the up and up. Becky was a determined woman when it came to her art and what she wanted.
THE TALENTED MISS FARWELL is an enjoyable read simply because you can't believe what she is doing.
The writing is fresh and pulls you in. A wonderful book for a debut.
Art aficionados and any reader who just needs something different will find this book enjoyable. 5/5
This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
