You know when you begin reading The Painter's Daughter, the latest novel by Julie Klassen, that you are in store for a lot of action!  Captain Stephen Overtree finds himself on the hunt for his missing brother, Wesley.  Once again Wesley has run off to pursue his own dreams.  Only this time Wesley has left a young pregnant woman behind!

With Wesley nowhere to be found, Stephen decides that he must marry Sophia to protect her reputation.  Once they are married, Stephen proceeds to introduce Sophia to his family and his home at Overtree Hall.  Stephen and Sophia are barely becoming acquainted when unfortunately Stephen must leave to fulfill his responsibilities with the military.  Soon after Stephen leaves, Wesley suddenly shows up on the scene to further complicate the situation!

This book tells a tale where Sophia must decide in the end which path holds God's will for her.  The story will definitely hold your interest until you finally discover Sophia's final decision!

 I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my unbiased review.
