Painting of Sorrow

Painting of Sorrow by Virginia Winters pulled me in from the very beginning. Lately I have been into "art mystery" audiobooks and I really enjoyed this one. Elements of it are thought provoking, while other things are not believable. I didn't think the US Witness Protection Program moved people to other countries, Stolen art, lost treasures, mysterious finds are things that intrigue me. The premise of this book is great. The point of views was interesting. Virgina Ferguson performed this book very well. One could feel her emotions. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Engaging, but a bit confusing

I enjoyed listening to this story, but should probably have chosen to read it instead. There are too many switches in points of view for a smooth audiobook listen. However, it was a good one and worth the effort.

a very slow pace

I don't know if everyone would enjoy this story I will admit I stopped the book and went to another one and only then listened to the rest of the story because the story is very very slow it's not a bad thing because it is part of the old scenario and maybe it's a bit unusual but it is very very good in some manner it is enjoyable after all low pace is a part of art

Too Slow


Painting of Sorrow is a slow moving story with flat characters. I couldn't force myself to finish it.
