 Davida by Karen Ingalls (4)
 Davida by Karen Ingalls
Augustus Saint-Gaudens was the premier American sculptor from 1880-1920. Though married he fell in love with his model, Davida Johnson Clark and their love affair lasted more than twenty-five years. This fictionalized account will introduce the reader to some of the great art, historical facts, and the moral values of that era.
The author is the great-granddaughter from this union and her purpose in writing the book is to bring recognition to Davida and remove any negative stigma to her. Her grandfather suffered his whole life from being labeled a bastard while growing up and this story is intended to remove that label.
How can a love affair last for such a long period of time? What affect did it have on his career? How did his wife and son cope with their being a second family?
This is a compelling and beautiful love story that has needed to be told.

Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman's childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this country boy to life in the big cities. After a short stint as a private investigator, he moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.

  2. My most humble apologies that I have just now gotten to the blog hop posting highlighting my book, Davida. I was not able to be near my computer for a few days and completely missed this and other blog hop postings.
    Thank you, Mark for hosting me AND thanks to Joy, Denise, Wendy, Rhani, Yvette, Gwen, Maretha, Brenda, Beem, and Gracie for your support and kind words. My deepest apologies again.

  3. Mark, thanks for hosting Karen on this blog hop. I am currently reading Novy’s Son. If Davida is anything like Novy’s Son it is worth reading.

  4. I’ve read both Novy’s Son and Davida and can tell you that they are both worth reading. Davida is such a beautiful story, so much so that I gave it to my mom to read, and she loved it as well. Mark, thanks for hosting such an incredible author! 🙂
