PAINTER'S APPRENTICE

CHARLOTTE BETTS    Book Number: 88049    Product format: Paperback

Set in the time of the Glorious Revolution when England is still beset by religious rivalries during the reign of James II and following the Great Fire in plague-ridden England and appreciated by readers for its wonderful descriptions of painting, fashions, food, politics and social circumstances of the time, the novel is set in 1688. Beth Ambrose has led a sheltered life within Merryfields, her family home on the outskirts of London, a place where her parents provide a sanctuary for melancholic souls. A passionate and gifted artist, Beth shares a close bond with Johannes the painter, who nurtures her talents and takes her on as his apprentice. But as political tensions begin to rise in the capital, Noah Leyton arrives at her family home in the middle of the night with a proposition that turns Beth's world upside down. And when Merryfields becomes refuge to a mysterious new guest, whose connections provide an opportunity for Beth to fulfil her artistic ambitions, she soon realises that it comes at a price. "With the sensual language of Patrick Suskind's Perfume and the historical flavour of Philippa Gregory." 405pp in paperback.
