Written by Nora
This book is ultimately the story of the depth of a mother's love for her son and how far a mother will go to protect her child. The story is a page turner with every page bringing suspense, grief, sadness, and mystery. The imagery brings the story to life, you can visualise the portrait that Francesco has painted. You can see the houses along the streets in Dublin. You can smell the fresh bread at the market in Galway. I was Johanna, I felt her pain and fear. I was Francesco and felt his passion for art and life. A must-read, but be careful, you are warned, you will not be able to put it down until you finish. I didn't. Excellent storyline. Very well written. Most enjoyable.
