Overview

Childless heiress Abigail Adams Longley and three other widows bond over a Renaissance masterpiece in Florence, Italy, and find love, friendship and joy in their joint venture to open an art gallery at the Longley mansion in Lobster Cove, Maine.

Since the death of her husband, Abigail has been lonely and drifting in a house that's too big and a town that's too small. When she literally runs into sexy widower and whale-watching excursion captain Tack Garrity on the dock, she's entranced by his adorable five-year-old daughter. But will Tack, who has harbored a secret crush on Abigail for almost two decades, be able to capture her heart?

A secret pact her husband made with Tack could either tear them apart or bring them closer together and change their lives forever.

The Widows’ Gallery is an epic journey into the world of travel, art, and the formation of friendship, lasting bonds, relationships, and romance—against all odds. Marilyn Baron cleverly weaves each of the four Widows’ distinctive personalities and lives into the rich fabric of this story that culminates in a joint adventure in the international world of art and love—in the small town of Lobster Cove, Maine. After meeting on a cruise ship bound for Italy, Abby pulls Natalie, Victoria, and Jane into a whirlwind venture wrapped around the beautiful Botticelli Renaissance masterpiece—The Birth of Venus. Baron’s knowledge and obvious love of art—and the art world—brings this story alive with flair. And, oh yes, the romance! Not to give anything away, lest you haven’t read the book (which you must), Baron’s unique twists and turns for each of the four widows was an excellent and entertaining read from start to finish. Her style, voice, and perspective of life and love are spot on. Looking forward to reading more of Marilyn Baron’s books.

This book has an unusual premise that hooked me right away--several widows, of varying ages, meet on a cruise ship and find a common passion that both binds them together in their loss and in their hope for regaining happiness. Abigail, the heroine, has inherited great wealth but is floundering without her husband. His death has made her bitter and hard. At times, she is difficult to like, especially when she gets furious with Tack, the hero. Then you find out that Tack hasn't been exactly playing it straight with her...and he knows a side of Abigail that seems to be buried along with her husband. I enjoyed the unique story line, complex characters, well-drawn settings, and the use of art (The Birth of Venus) for both plot and theme. Pay attention to those water scenes!
