Publisher's Summary

For decades the painting was believed to be lost. But just as mysteriously as it disappeared, it reappears, an anonymous donation to a gallery in Sydney. The art world is stunned, but so are the three men who loved the woman in the painting - the woman on the stairs.
One by one they track her down to an isolated cottage in Australia. Here they must try to untangle the lies and betrayals of their shared past - but time is running out.
The Woman on the Stairs is an intricately crafted, poignant and beguiling novel about creativity and love, about the effects of time passing and the regrets that haunt us all.

The main character- she was most disappointing

Any additional comments?

The plot had too many large holes....I would have spent my time better had I watched some paint dry.
