Publisher's Summary

When famous artist Napier Todd stumbles across Edith Hanson scrubbing floors, he is immediately struck by her beauty. Within weeks Napier and Edith are married, and she moves into his large country house. However, the marriage is troubled from the start, and Edith falls ill. Napier takes her to the idyllic Cornish fishing village of Newbourne to convalesce, and there Edith meets Celandine, a struggling artist, and her husband, Sheridan, another painter. Because Celandine understands Napier's artistic temperament, she tries to help Edith with her marriage difficulties. Although her advice succeeds, it also causes tragic repercussions. And with the attractive Alfred Talisman waiting in the wings, it seems that both women's happiness may be ruined.

This is the latest novel from the highly-acclaimed and best-selling author of, amongst others, Summertime, The Season, Debutantes, The Nightingale Sings, and Daughters of Eden.

disappointing ending

I really enjoyed the reader for this book. She has great voices for the characters.

The story is very detailed, and even though I didn't like the "hero" I just figured that was as it was. My biggest disappointment was that the ending fell flat. It seemed to me that the author had used up her allotment of words and quit as quickly as she could. Since the rest of the book is so detailed, I wondered what happened.

I guess it's worth the listen, and even though things end well, it just doesn't feel complete.
