Born into a wealthy Parisian family at the center of Belle Epoque society, 18-year-old Aim e Savaray dreams of becoming a respected painter in the male-dominated art world; and secretly, she also dreams of being loved by Henri, the boy her parents took in as a child and raised alongside her.

But when Henri inexplicably disappears, in the midst of the Franco-Prussian war, the Savarays' privileged lives begin to unravel. Heartbroken, Aim e tries to find him, but Henri doesn't want to be found--and only one member of the family knows why.

As Aim e seeks refuge in the art world, mentored by the Impressionist douard Manet, she unwittingly finds her way back to Henri. With so many years gone by and secrets buried, their eventual reunion unmasks the lies that once held the family together, but now threaten to tear them apart.

A rich and opulent saga, Girl in the Afternoon brings the Impressionists to life in this portrait of scandal, fortune, and unrequited love.
