Publisher's Description

A heart-stirring story about a woman's journey to self-discovery through art and her family's history.

Forbidden. Hidden. Denied. Can art be powerful enough to endure?

Ragni Clauson’s work, relationships, and body all seem to be falling apart. And she isn’t convinced that spending her vacation fixing up her great-grandmother’s cabin and supervising her rebellious teenage niece, Erika, will offer any much-needed rejuvenation.

As Ragni and Erika clean, they begin to uncover the secret paintings and life of Nilda, Ragni’s ancestor who lived in the cabin in the early 1900s. Ragni doesn’t know how much she has in common with her great-grandmother, but it becomes clear Nilda faced her own struggles. Taking care of home and menfolk, fighting off locusts, raising her daughter, and finding time to paint in the midst of it all were not easy tasks. Will Nilda’s passion for enduring art re-ignite Ragni’s artistic soul a century later?

Weaving together the stories of three generations of women, The Brushstroke Legacy stirs us to believe that no matter the circumstances, we are called to use our gifts—never knowing when they might bring a stranger to a new place of hope.

In her latest novel, The Brushstroke Legacy, author Lauraine Snelling shares a passionate story of love and faith that transcends three generations of women. Ragni suddenly finds herself headed to her great-grandmother's cabin on the Little Missouri, to take care of some long overdue repairs with her iPod-addicted, goth-wearing, sulking teenage niece. As Ragni and her niece, Erika, who both love art, begin work on the cabin they discover the beautiful art of their great-grandmother, Nilda that had been a secret.
Author Lauraine Snelling weaves back and forth between these three generations of women as each chapter reveals their personal heartaches and triumphs. The Brushstroke Legacy allows the reader to compare life as we know it with how it was lived back in 1906. Snelling gives us another compassionate novel about women overcoming odds and who found their outlet in art. Both women desire to use their gifts no matter the circumstances.
As Ragni and Erica work together to repair the cabin they go back in time to their shared history and learn that what separates them is not as great as what binds them together. Snelling also brings in romance and marriage for Nilda and Ragni which enriched their lives and also gives us more interest in this compelling story! <
The Brushstroke Legacy is a wonderful read for those of us who love historical and contemporary fiction alike. This is an unforgettable story of life, love, and legacy, sustained in three generations of women. It is an inspirational book for women to look back and forward to the generations and what our own legacy can and will be. Highly Recommended. – Judy Vipperman, Christian Book Previews.com
