Overview

Even in the Regency, marketing plans were useful, especially when parents were seeking to marry a daughter advantageously. Lord and Lady Curran expect their daughter's portrait to convince potential suitors of her beauty, her worth and her desirability. Of course, it must also show her as a perfect, obedient, demure lady. Kermit Sutherland is a popular portraitist, so of course he is engaged to produce the portrait. What Chastity's parents don't understand is that Sutherland paints more than the surface. He has a knack for seeing into a woman's heart and soul. Under her obedient facade, Chastity harbors a rebellious heart, and Sutherland sees it and encourages it. When her portrait is finished, it might show more than her parents--or she--have bargained for.

Editorial Reviews

Kimber Reviewer
The Portrait is not a romance. Told in first person, it is a powerful yet subtle coming of age story. Judith B. Glad skillfully draws readers through Chastity's changing emotions and growing awareness of her sexuality, her desirability. She evolves from seeing herself as a dutiful child to embracing her unique beauty. The Portrait is a gem of a story, one to be passed on from mother to daughter. 5 Angels! Recommended Read.
