MY REVIEW-Julie Klassen is a truly talented author, as evidenced again by her latest novel, The Painter's Daughter. I always enjoy these stories and while they are delightful, they are normally deep and thoughtful.
Captain Stephen Overtree steps in and saves the day, marrying Sophia Dupont, after his brother leaves her pregnant and alone. I really liked Stephen. He is kind and gentle, though not always coming across that way. He is firm and used to being obeyed, if only he can learn to treat Sophie different than the men he commands. They make for a great couple with the normal tensions of a marriage with no love at the start.
Mrs Klassen is particular to historical detail and it is part of what makes me love her books. Rich in all kinds of detail, from the weather to the clothing being worn, and don't forget the actual history of an area. Excellent Regency era book and I cannot wait for her next story!!
