Recommendation by Jean Scoon, Institutional Advancement, Saint John's University:
The Lost Painting by Jonathan Harr
I highly recommend The Lost Painting by Jonathan Harr... I got it at the SJU Bookstore last week when I saw it on MaryAnn Baenninger's recommended list. It's the story of the discovery of a painting that had been lost for several hundred years. You wouldn't think it would be that exciting, but it's like a detective story. The author manages to make it dramatic, even though a lot of it is about art historians poring over ancient archives!
