Beneath the finished work of a painting lies the brush strokes of life – seemingly random splashes of color dashed against a white backdrop. Therein lies the life of a young woman and her new-found friend in the woods. Both escaping for vastly different reasons. As Charlotte’s life is brought forth onto the canvas, Royal steps into the scene mesmerized and challenged by Charlotte’s quiet manner and is haunted by her memory. All of which seem to be captured upon the canvas of the Painter – a mysterious man who appears in the most unlikely places. He ultimately captures their spirit upon his final masterpiece of the Hammer and the Anvil.

This book is well written & is difficult to put down. I was into the story from the beginning to the end. It makes one appreciate the conveniences we have today, but the life stories of the years just before the Civil War are the same today. The difference is the setting. Some of the characters live a selfish life style & others live a honorable life style, just like today. I would recommend this for a book club discussion. I would read another book by this author!
I found the book intoxicating in that I could not put it down. The author keeps you at the edge of your seat as the a character plunges into a frozen lake. Or the romance between two of the characters, will they ever admit that they are in love. I highly recommend the book.
