By the time he discovers the stunning young lady’s father is a fearsome international spy who brought them together, Wyeth’s heart is in chaos.
But Chrissy is determined to follow him and daydreams of creating a home on his island. With the Island Summer Dance looming ahead, Wyeth tries to protect Painter Place from any danger her presence might bring. Will Wyeth force himself to get over her, or can both their dreams intertwine and come true?

Having read all the other books in the Painter Place Saga, I was excited to have the opportunity to review Landmark by Pamela Poole. This author has the ability to create characters, locations, and settings that bring her stories to life. I love the incredible amount of details and information she gives. The emotions she brings to life touch my soul. Having read about Wyeth as an uncle and established artist in the earlier books and about his wife Christy, I looked forward to getting to know them when they were younger.
This book did not disappoint. The Christian faith demonstrated by the main characters in this story pulled me in along with their values and convictions. While I knew the charactes from the. earlier books, I loved reading about how they met the people they would eventually marry andhave children with that I read about in the earlier books.
The details and emotions expressed in the pages of this book as well as the earlier ones in the series make me feel I am actually present in the story. Truly this book and the entire series are books worth reading. So check out Landmark for yourself.
I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

More from Pamela
Hi, I’m Pamela Poole, and I live an amazing life as an artist and author! What makes my life amazing isn’t the things I get to do. It’s the scope of experiences, from devasating to incredibly wonderful, that are used by Christ to weave my story and make it one worth telling and living.
Have you ever noticed that people entertain themselves at the expense of the sufferring of others? What about the book you’re currently reading? Would you be interested in the story if the author didn’t drag the characters through excruciating ordeals so they could grow into a better person? We tend to pray for protection from trouble for ourselves and loved ones, then we relish reading or watching others as they cope with it. Their stories are the ones we find amazing. What irony!
In my latest novel, Landmark, I take readers back to the year 1960 to journey with the Painter and Gregoy families as they navigate through trouble on the verge of a tumultuous new decade. Their efforts to do the right things as they walk with Christ will not eliminate the valuable struggle ahead of them. Like other novels in the saga, Landmark is a nostalgic, entertaining, and wholesome story, yet it is packed with meaningful insights that encourage us as we set up our own landmarks to mark the times when Jesus was faithful through our struggles.
Landmark is the first book in the saga chronologically.
