ABOUT THE BOOK
In September 21, 1989, Hurricane Hugo came in the dead of night, slamming Category 4 power into Charleston, South Carolina at the worst possible time—high tide. Painter Place is scoured by the writing Atlantic storm surge, forcing Caroline Painter Gregory to say goodbye to a life she loves and face a future that may hold the worst that might happen. On the devastated South Carolina coastline of 1989 and then in Arles, France during the centennial of Van Gogh’s life there, Hugo continues the saga of Painter Place.

Having read Painter Place, the first book in this series, I was looking forward to reading this second book. While someone could possibly read this book without reading the first, I would definitely recommend reading them in order.
I have to say one reason why I definitely wanted to read this book was that I was living in Eastern North Carolina at the time Hurricane Hugo roared into the Carolinas. Because of the track the storm took, we missed being impacted by the storm personally. On the other hand, my parents had friends living in the direct path of the storm. Also, living in Eastern North Carolina and then Texas, we have experienced quite a few hurricanes personally. So I was interested to see how Pamela Poole would handle the details of a hurricane.
The amazing way Pamela Poole ties together art, separate characters, separate locations, and Christianity captured my attention when I first started reading. The artistic aspects of this book filled my mind with pictures of what I was reading. I appreciated how this story picked up the story ended in Painter Place. However, I also have to say, I can not wait to read the next book in this series. So if you love fiction that includes art, storms, family, and Christianity, check out this book for yourself.
Pamela Poole’s love for the South inspires all her books and paintings. She has written three novels and two short stories that take place on the fictional island in the Painter Place Saga, and she will launch the fourth book. Landmark, in 2019. Pamela lives life loving Jesus and her family as a wife, mother, and Gigi, and she is blessed with true friends. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and various author and artist organizations. She and her husband Mark live in Raleigh, North Carolina.
“Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us— to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20,21
