Featuring: Catherine Sergeant; John Brigham
Add to Wish List
Catherine Sergeant is adept at going through the motions.
After losing her parents at an early age, she buried her
grief in the study of antiquities. Now, deserted by her
husband without warning or explanation, she reports to work
at Pearson’s auction house, exchanging pleasantries with
colleagues, never revealing her pain. Cocooned in
loneliness, she couldn’t be more surprised to find herself
opening up to a total stranger–a new client, no less.
In widowed architect John Brigham, Catherine finds a kindred
spirit. The two share a fascination with Richard Dadd, an
early Victorian painter who lived most of his life
incarcerated in an insane asylum. There he produced his most
stunning works–works that have deeply moved Catherine and
now draw her inexorably
to John. Soon the two are falling in love.
The reawakening of passion in a woman like Catherine is more
than John ever hoped for. But when she discovers his
possession of an unknown Dadd, it is just the first in a
series of revelations that leave her wondering if she knows
this man who has shown her life’s true beauty. For John, it
may be a last chance to free himself from the priceless
secrets he has been harboring too long. Secrets about a soul
laid bare on canvas, and a legacy that could shatter all he
holds dear in the space of a heartbeat…
A compelling blend of human drama, art, and history, this
intriguing tale casts a spell that lingers far beyond the
final page–and celebrates the strength we all must find
within our hearts.
