Book Title: The Elsingham Portrait Author: Elizabeth Chater Published by: Chater Publishing Age Recommended: 16+ Rating 4 Ravens
Review: Expecting a marriage proposal but ending up jilted, Kathryn Hendrix wanders into an art gallery and becomes lost in the eyes of a portrait of a beautiful woman painted 200 hundred years before. Suddenly, she’s transported into an eighteenth century English world of luxury and decadence—now occupying the body of the woman in the portrait, Lady Nadine Elsingham. Kathryn finds herself confronted by the arrogant yet disturbingly handsome husband of Lady Elsingham, Lord John, all the while thrust into an old world that thinks her mad when she tries to explain what’s happening in the “colonies.” How will she escape being sent to Bedlam before she can get back to her old life?
I was pleasantly surprised by this story. I found myself enjoying page after page, filled with colourful characters and an intriguing story. I didn’t try to guess what was coming; instead, happily engrossed in the story, I lost myself in the adventure. I liked the heroine, finding her believable and quite animated.
