New York, New York — Women of the 1800s were often seen as second-class or rejected in the business world, and especially in the artist world. But, very rarely do the stories in history books expose the severe impact on the women of that day. Author Alma H. Bond’s new book “Camille Claudel, a Novel” offers a close look into the heart of a woman who aspired to be an artist during the 1800s, but was ultimately rejected despite her amazing talents.

Once a talented artist and sculptor from the 1800s, Camille Claudel sadly spent the final 30 years of her life in an insane asylum after being rejected and belittled in a man-ruled society. The new book takes the reader through the pages of Claudel’s life, with history and fiction combined for an entertaining and informative reading experience.

“Fascinating journey into Claudel’s heart and mind,” states Sabah N. Al-Dhaher, sculptor.

“Camille Claudel, a Novel” is written in first person from Claudel’s point of view and offers a detailed story of her artistic development through the teachings of the well-known artist Auguste Rodin, which led to a tragic romance between the two. Claudel’s struggles of being a woman artist during the 19th Century are brought out clearly to show how the suppression and rejection of her abilities along with a bitter end to her romance with Rodin led to her mental breakdown.

“Bond is a genius at verbalizing the reality others are experiencing,” says Annie Laura Jaggers, columnist and author.

Roberta Austin, a compulsive reader, relates her feelings about the book, “Dr. Bond has a lifetime of rich experience that lends depth and understanding to this brilliant book.”

The book is already receiving much recognition from readers and the media alike. At the CNW/FFWA Florida State Writing Competition, it was an award-winning novel. The book has also received raving reviews.

Cassandra Langer of Midwest Book Reviews states, “The book breathes fresh life into this neglected sculptor.”

“Combining an astonishing depth of historical research with a fertile imagination and great psychological insight,” from Bookwire.
