Painting in my mind

I've started Burning Bright now, - for real this time! And, I get to know the people, and London, in 1792. There is the French Revolution happening, and even if our heroes don't know too much about it, they get to learn a little bit more now, through their artist neighbor, who wears the "red cap", the one used by the revolutionary on the other side of the Channel.
Tracy Chevalier really knows how to paint a picture with words! I can see the street, the garden where the kids are not allowed to play, and where there is no space for their mother to plant her vegetables...
