Publisher's Summary

1688: Beth Ambrose has led a sheltered life within Merryfields, her family home on the outskirts of London; a place where her parents provide a sanctuary for melancholic souls.
A passionate and gifted artist, Beth shares a close bond with Johannes the painter, who nurtures her talents and takes her on as his apprentice.
But as political tensions begin to rise in the capital, Noah Leyton arrives at her family home in the middle of the night with a proposition that turns Beth's world upside down. And when Merryfields becomes refuge to a mysterious new guest, whose connections provide an opportunity for Beth to fulfill her artistic ambitions, it soon becomes clear that it comes at a price....

became good over 3/4 of the way through book.

Any additional comments?

this was a book I wasn't in a hurry to get back to. it got bogged down in the romance between beth and noah whether each loved the other. it was repetitive.
the historical parts were really good.
as with the previous books after the end of the story there was the information about who was real and who was fiction. what happened to the monarchy which was interesting.
anne dover performed the book well bringing the characters to life.
