In June of 1985, Caroline Painter’s uncle whisks her away from her island home at Painter Place to film an art video in the harbor village of Mevagissey. But instead of clearing her head, the young artist becomes entangled in adventure on the English Channel when she influences a rock star’s contract and the media launches her into fame. When she returns home, she discovers a shattering secret that makes her question everything in her life. Can she trust the only one who says he understands?
Imagine being in love and believing a proposal is imminent, but instead, the person chooses God and the mission-field over you. This scenario is precisely what happens to Caroline Painter. But then imagine a high school friend returns and wants to court her. In the meantime, Caroline’s family arrange for her to go on a trip with her uncle to film a painting documentary series.
Add in the paparazzi, a famous musician and some additional family members and an unforgettable story begin. I have to say I enjoyed reading every page of this story. Caroline and Chad face challenges from the paparazzi and figuring out what happened during the time they were apart.
The book illustrates that sometimes dreams do come true and there is such a thing as “happily ever after”. The love and devotion of Caroline’s parents, siblings, and other family members add dimensions to this story. Also, the importance of faith and believing in God shins through the pages of this story.
So if you want to read a book centered in the Carolinas with forays into the world, check out this story for yourself.
I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.
