Publisher's Description

Julie Klassen Is the Gold Standard for Inspirational Regency Fiction

Sophie Dupont, daughter of a portrait painter, assists her father in his studio, keeping her own artwork out of sight. She often walks the cliffside path along the north Devon coast, popular with artists and poets. It's where she met the handsome Wesley Overtree, the first man to tell her she's beautiful.

Captain Stephen Overtree is accustomed to taking on his brother's neglected duties. Home on leave, he's sent to find Wesley. Knowing his brother rented a cottage from a fellow painter, he travels to Devonshire and meets Miss Dupont, the painter's daughter. He's startled to recognize her from a miniature portrait he carries with him--one of Wesley's discarded works. But his happiness plummets when he realizes Wesley has left her with child and sailed away to Italy in search of a new muse.

Wanting to do something worthwhile with his life, Stephen proposes to Sophie. He does not offer love, or even a future together, but he can save her from scandal. If he dies in battle, as he believes he will, she'll be a respectable widow with the protection of his family.

Desperate for a way to escape her predicament, Sophie agrees to marry a stranger and travel to his family's estate. But at Overtree Hall, her problems are just beginning. Will she regret marrying Captain Overtree when a repentant Wesley returns? Or will she find herself torn between the father of her child and her growing affection for the husband she barely knows?

    The Painter's Daughter

    By Julie Klassen

    She thought she had found the man she would marry, until he left her behind to follow his dream. When Wesley Overtree left a brief hurried message saying he was traveling to Italy, Sophie Dupont found herself in an impossible position.

    And Wesley's younger brother may be her only way to escape scandal and ruination. But can she tie her future to Captain Stephen Overtree, a man she has only just met, when her heart belongs to his brother? And is the promise of a marriage that is "in name only" enough to bind her to this brooding man known for his black moods?

    Time is short and Sophie's choices are few when a woman's reputation is everything. A scandal, a period of isolation, or a loveless marriage ~ she has hours to decide the future she will call her own. But can she live with the decision she is about to make?

    Julie Klassen's books always have this undercurrent of someone having a secret with which they have to come to terms with. The Painter's Daughter is no different and in fact there are several characters who seem to be guarding secrets - some of which will be revealed in a most shocking turn of events.

    Readers who enjoy historical fiction set in the Regency period will love delving into this book. Fans of Jane Austen will be thrilled at the references to her work in this book. And if you want to know which one you'll have to read the book for yourself. An enjoyable book that will fill a long afternoon or week-end with page-turning diversion.

    I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher through TBCN/BookFun in exchange for my honest review.

An aristocratic ner' do well lives in her fathers cottages during season and Sophie is seduced by Wesley Overtree's personality and love of painting. Wesley is Captain Stephen Overstreet's older brother who is inherently selfish to the max.

I took it on a cruise with me and read it 24 hours because I just kept reading!!! You will love it, from depth of characters to the subtle mystery to the family intrigue. I look forward to more form Julie Klassen.

    This review was written for The Painter's Daughter - eBook.
    Excellent Christian Historical Romance set in 1815 Devonshire, England. As in Julie's other books, you build immediate empathy for Sophie, the Painter's Daughter as she's been deserted by the man she fell in love with. But his brother comes in to the rescue and marries her. Of course she is not of their class, and their family doesn't approve of her. And she's a painter in her own right, but women painters were not accepted at the time. The intensity builds throughout the story, including scenes from a battle with Napoleon. Not a quick read, but fully enjoyable - you won't be bored! Don't you just love that cover?

    The Painter's Daughter***** by Julie Klassen

    1885...Devonshire, England

    Sophie Dupont assists her fathera portrait painterin his studio, keeping her own artwork secret from their customers. After the studio closes each day, Sophie often wonders the cliffside along the Devon coast, finding peace in the Creators' beauty before her. However, on this day Sophie comes to the cliffside with a broken heart after finding a very short note from artist Wesley Overtreehe left for Italy...without her. Now what is she to do her heart cries out?

    Captain Stephen Overtree comes to Devonshire searching for his brother, Wesley, but instead of finding Wesley he stumbles upon Sophie Dupont on the cliffside in tears. Not long after their meeting, Stephen learns that not only did Wesley leave for Italy, he left Sophie expecting his child. Angry at his brother, her offers Sophie a solution...he would marry her, giving her and her child his name and a home. Is this the answer to her prayers...to marry Stephen? What will his parents think of his elopement with a stranger? Will they accept her...her child as his?

    There are so many characters in this book that I became fond ofof course honorable, gentle hearted (which he tries to keep hidden) Stephen and strong, caring Sophie, his young sister Kate and Stephen's grandfather, Colonel Horton. Must not forget his old nurse, Winnie, she certainly is a bit odd at times but very likeable. I did not care for Lieutenant Keith at first, but he became a changed man and I found myself liking him very much.

    Julie Klassen's artistic-like descriptions of the Devonshire cost and surrounding areas were so well drawn I could envision themalmost feel the wind on the Devon cliffsideas I read along. As with her other novels, The Painter's Daughter is filled with breathtaking scenery, characters that are true-to-life and endearing, coupled with unexpected twists and turns in the plot-line, suspense and drama, many secretssome very surprising secrets that were well hidden. Redemption, forgiveness, heartachesoften the consequences from their choices, a wide range of emotionsin the story-line and for the reader, faith and love. A beautifully written historical novel.
