What happens when a monstrous debutante meets a fierce apprentice painter? War.

If there’s one thing Michael Cavinder can’t abide, it’s vanity. As the son of an artist, he has seen a great deal of it from his father’s clients. When Miss Patience Hansford, clearly fresh from London society, demands a portrait from Michael’s ailing father, she offers payment that their family desperately needs. An apprentice in the trade, Michael paints the portrait in his father’s place.

When Patience’s dissatisfaction with the portrait brings her to do something unpardonable, Michael creates a new portrait—one portraying her for who she truly is. A monster. When its display in a local exhibition garners Michael’s work fame and attention, Patience seeks her revenge, pursuing the painter who ruined her reputation. What she didn’t expect, however, was to find much to like about Michael, and much less to like about the person she has become.

As Michael and Patience struggle to find their places in society, games of revenge and betrayal continue from all sides, drawing them unexpectedly closer. When it comes to falling in love with the enemy…will their hearts betray them too?

One response to “In Pursuit of the Painter by Ashtyn Newbold

  1. Maria

    This is a beautiful love story with a great moral. “The value of a painting is determined by its appearance. They are created to be looked at. People are not paintings.” Patience had in essence been told she was a painting her whole life. What a gift Michael gives her by teaching her the truth.
    There is a strong theme of forgiveness through out the book. There is much about which Michael and Patience have to forgive each other and others. I loved Michael’s family and what good people they are. But I also loved the imperfections in characters. No one is perfect and we saw the flaws in Michael and Patience. And yet they still can have a perfectly wonderful happily ever after, flaws and all.

    Enjoyable, sweet read.
