The Talented Miss Farwell by Emily Gray Tedrowe is a unique story about a teenage girl who realizes that to survive, she’s will have to take care of her sickly widowed father, run the family business, and drop out of school. It turns out that Rebecca has a great mind for numbers with an impressive skill set for skewing said numbers which allows her, at a very young age, to start collecting art and reselling it all while being the small town bookkeeper. Her money of course comes from skimming city funds from her rural farm town where she’s considered heroic for her ability to make sense of their inefficient bookkeeping. On the flip side, Rebecca is admired, revered, and considered a serious art collector in Chicago where she is known as Reba. Her duplicitous life is what makes this story so interesting. She reinvents herself with a glorious art collection, beautiful clothes, furnishings, jewelry, and handbags. As I read this book, I kept hoping she could pull it all off. It’s unusual for me to root for the thief but I loved it, and I hope you will give it a read.

The Talented Miss Farwell is a well-developed character study of the inner workings of a young woman tempted by fate. She is greedy, self-centered, selfish and an accomplished liar. She has a thing for fine art. She buys it. She lives two very different lives to maintain her art habit. Very interesting stories.
