Love's Portrait

by Anna Larner

Newly appointed art curator Molly Goode is committed to diversifying her museum’s collection. When Georgina Wright, the museum’s aloof benefactor, asks for Molly’s help in identifying the provenance of a 19th century portrait of social activist Josephine Brancaster, Molly welcomes the opportunity, even if it means spending time with the standoffish financier. But passions soon flare as the women uncover the heartbreaking story of doomed lesbian love behind the watercolor painted by Josephine’s lover, Edith Hewitt.

As their love blossoms, Molly is determined to display Edith’s portrait of Josephine and to tell their story in the museum, but she needs the influential Georgina to help convince the board. When an unforeseen twist in the painting’s provenance forces Georgina to confront her own painful past, will history repeat itself, or can Molly and Georgina’s love prevail?

  1. Ameliah

    Art curator Molly is new at her job and her boss is seriously intimating!! Molly has been given the task of working with financier Georgina on a special project designed to keep Georgina a happy donor. Together they are trying to find out who painted a portrait of Georgina’s ancestor. As they uncover the heartbreaking story of lesbian love in the19th century, they find themselves drawn to each other as well… With twists and turns galore, do they stand a chance?

    Molly and Georgina could not be more different. Molly is a perky, bouncy romantic while Georgina is closed off and refined but also drowning in sorrow after her father’s death. I found this story fascinating. There is a lot that goes on in this book but it’s not drowning in too much drama. I loved the mystery surrounding the painting, the heartbreaking tale of Edith and Josephine and the deepening feelings and eventual love between the two women. This is a lovely read that will keep you entertained for hours!
