The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova - Audiobook giveaway

The Swan Thieves
by Elizabeth Kostova

Psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe has a perfectly ordered life--solitary, perhaps, but full of devotion to his profession and the painting hobby he loves. This order is destroyed when renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes his patient. In response, Marlowe finds himself going beyond his own legal and ethical boundaries to understand the secret that torments this genius, a journey that will lead him into the lives of the women closest to Robert Oliver and toward a tragedy at the heart of French Impressionism.

Ranging from American museums to the coast of Normandy, from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth, from young love to last love, THE SWAN THIEVES is a story of obsession, the losses of history, and the power of art to preserve human hope.

My favorite hobby these days...honestly, it's been this world of books and blogging. But aside from that, I enjoy movies and in my spare-spare-spare time (ha!) I enjoy cross-stitching.

My hobby is reading. Yup, that's it. Anything else I might do is just a pastime...a filler-up of minutes between books.

My favorite hobby is decorative painting. I've been selling my paintings at craft shows for about 10 years now and have a fairly big clientele. I think it is great to earn some money and meet fantastic people all from doing the things that you love to do. I'd also love to listen to this audio book. Thanks for this giveaway.
