    This review was written for The Missing Matisse: A Memoir.
    The Missing Matisse is a lovely memoir written by Pierre Henri Matisse, the grandson of famous artist Henri Matisse.

    The memoir, which largely focuses on the childhood and World War II years of Pierre, is a story of courage and creation. It also deals with the pain of ostracism and finding ones identity. And it is, in essence, a love story to God revealing how God was always in Pierres life, even before he truly came to a personal relationship with Him.

    Written very much like a fiction novel, a great portion of Matisses memoir offers the perspective of Pierre as a young child and teen-ager, and his experience of WWII, including underground secret missions. Young Pierre was precocious and full of mischief, a free spirit who sought out adventure. But its exactly these characteristics that helped get survive the war, as well as his military service in Northern Africa after WWII.

    Throughout the book, and therefore throughout his life, he also constantly fought with the concept of his own identity, especially after being forced to change his last name from Matisse to Leroy as a child.

    The remainder of the book deals with his move to Canada and eventually the United States, and how steps in his life eventually brought him to the place where he knew he needed a personal relationship with Jesus.

    Matisse begins each chapter with personal illustrations reflecting that chapters topic, and the book also contains photos from as early as his childhood to the present.

    The Missing Matisse is a fabulous memoir. It is a great book for anyone who enjoys autobiographies, World War II and historical books, art history, spy stories, and just a good tale in general. Its an inspiring story.

    Five stars out of five.
