Описание

In this tour de force, a father, shaken by tragedy, tries to avenge his daughter's murder-and restore his family's shattered life.

It was supposed to be a typical October evening for renowned portrait artist Will Light. Over dinner of lamb tagine, his wife, Sophie, would share news about chorus rehearsals for the upcoming holiday concert, and their teenage daughter, Lucy, would chatter about French club and field hockey. Only Lucy never came home. Her body was found, days later, in the woods.

The Eastern Seaboard town of Port Fortune used to be Will's comfort. Now, there's no safe harbor for him. Not even when Father Gervase asks Will to paint portraits of saints for the new cathedral. Using the townspeople as models, Will sees in each face only a mask of the darkness of evil. And he just might be painting his daughter's killer.

As Will navigates his rage and heartbreak, Sophie tries to move on; Father Gervase becomes an unexpected ally; and Rain, Lucy's best friend, shrouds herself in a near-silent fugue. Their paths collide in a series of inextricably linked, dark, dangerous moments that could lead to their undoing…or to their redemption.

  • (5/5)
    Will Light is an artist whose daughter has been murdered and is finding it so difficult to come to terms with it his wife has moved out. Unexpected redemption comes in the form of Father Gervase, a local Catholic priest who has been tasked to persuade him to paint large pictures of saints for the Cathedral. The author captures not only the devastating loss of a child's death, but the different ways this affects people. She also creates what appear to me to be very authentic characters of the child's school-friends and their difficulties relating to adults and the way they too can find redemption with the right help. I hadn't really expected to enjoy this book from the synopsisbut was very pleasantly surprised how it drew me in.

    Right under your nose

    They always say the truth is always closer to home. The story was a very good read. Lives torn apart and brought back together. Great closure, great ending.
