Review by Laura
After his grandfathers death, Ryan Harper inherits a painting and some of his grandfathers journals. The painting itself looks damaged but Ryan’s fiancé Natalie restores artwork and feels she can restore it. Reading his grandfather’s journals, they are taken back to the 1940’s where Derrick writes about his life in the navy and meeting his soul mate Jianna. This book tells the love story of two couples from both the past and present who share a common tie to the painting.
I fell in love with this book! It is beautifully written with wonderful characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. There are some heartfelt scenes which had me in tears. I can’t say enough good things about this book and I can’t wait for the next one! If you’re looking for that next romance to read I highly recommend this book. You won’t be sorry! I give this 5 books.
