Review & Giveaway: Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova Audio Book


Andrew works as a psychiatrist but his passion is painting. His life is pretty ordinary and he isn't used to making rash decisions or acting "spontaneously". When he faces a patient that had an episode at an art museum, he finds himself drawn to the man in ways beyond his imagination. His patient, Robert, has captured Andrew's imagination and set him on a path to find out what happened in Robert's life that has made him the person that he is. Soon, Andrew finds out more than he bargained for.

Elizabeth is a natural-born storyteller. I was immediately drawn into Andrew's life and felt like I was the one conversing with his patient, Robert. This masterpiece should not be missed by any book lover.
