Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A story nestled in a masterful weaving of secrets, betrayals, hope, and healing.”

–Allison Pittman, author of Stealing Home and Saturdays with Stella

A vivid story of a private grief, a secret painting, and one woman’s search for hope

Still mourning the loss of her family in a tragic accident, Lillian Diamon finds herself drawn back to the Rose House, a quiet cottage where four years earlier she had poured out her anguish among its fragrant blossoms.

She returns to the rolling hills and lush vineyards of the Sonoma Valley in search of something she can’t quite name. But then Lillian stumbles onto an unexpected discovery: displayed in the La Rosaleda Gallery is a painting that captures every detail of her most private moment of misery, from the sorrow etched across her face to the sandals on her feet.

What kind of artist would dare to intrude on such a personal scene, and how did he happen to witness Lillian’s pain? As the mystery surrounding the portrait becomes entangled with the accident that claimed the lives of her husband and children, Lillian is forced to rethink her assumptions about what really happened that day.

A captivating novel rich with detail, Rose House explores how the brushstrokes of pain can illuminate the true beauty of life.

Synopsis:

When tragedy destroys her family, Lillian Diamon pours out her anguish on the blossoms encircling their cottage. Years later, she finds a painting depicting her private heartbreak and tries to unravel the mysteries of the voyeuristic artist.
