That Sebastian loves a portrait with greater passion than he does his fiance' does not bode well for their marriage. When he meets the artist who painted it and finds that the well loved picture is a self portrait, his life becomes complicated. The woman who owns that face is far more suited to him, but obligations demand that he marry the shallow young woman who does not love him anymore than he does her, unless another way can be found. ....................................... *** More than one great novel or movie begins on the premise of falling in love with a portrait. Combining this with an almost Shakespearean in complexity shuffle of romance makes for a very workable novel that has the potential to cross genres in acquiring fans. ***
