Francine Rivers books don't come out very often -- but when they do, they are certainly worth the wait.
The Masterpiece is an amazing story of hurts, fears, struggles, love and redemption with twists and turns in many directions that keep you turning the page. Several times I intended to put the book down when I finished the chapter I was on, but when that chapter ended, there was no way to stop.
Roman, Grace, and their family and friends all are dealing with their own pasts -- pasts that are drastically different, yet the same in so many ways. God's love, shared in a variety of ways, makes unbelievable differences in so many of those lives.
The Masterpiece is not a short, quick read, but reading it is worth every one of the almost 500 pages. I highly recommend this book for fans of great inspirational fiction.
Thanks to Tyndale Publishers for providing a copy of this book. I am pleased to share my personal thoughts in this review.
A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want—money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman’s past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn’t know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist—an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison.
Like Roman, Grace is wrestling with ghosts and secrets of her own. After a disastrous marriage threw her life completely off course, she vowed never to let love steal her dreams again. But as she gets to know the enigmatic man behind the reputation, it’s as if the jagged pieces of both of their pasts slowly begin to fit together . . . until something so unexpected happens that it changes the course of their relationship—and both their lives—forever.
