The Painter’s Daughter by Julie Klassen was a wonderful book that kept me entertained for its’ entirety. Even thought it was over 400 pages, I read this relatively quickly since I didn’t want to put it down once I started reading the story of Sophie DuPont. Sophie works at her father’s art studio, and she finds herself in a love triangle between two brothers, the artist Wesley Overtree and Captain Stephen Overtree. When Sophie finds herself left behind by Wesley, she marries his brother and returns to their family home at Overtree Hall. Before she can even become too comfortable with her new husband, he is forced to leave her for his military position. When Wesley again enters the picture she is put in an extremely difficult position, as she is married to the brother of the man she first fell in love with.
As I said, I really enjoyed reading this book, and I would be interested in reading more books by Julie Klassen in the future. I liked how there was a mix of romance, military, and family interactions.
