Paint Me True
Eliza Dunmar is about to turn thirty-one and fears her best days are behind her. As a Latter-day Saint, she'll soon be too old to attend church in a singles ward, her career as a painter is no longer considered cool, and she feels too old to use the excuse that she's "just starting out" to explain why she still can't pay the bills. The only man interested in her is a scruffy, video game addicted nerd who is the first to admit that they are all wrong for each other.
When her beloved Aunt Nora calls from England and begs her to visit, Eliza leaps at the chance. Even better? Nora had the perfect romance with her late husband and is eager to share the tale. As Eliza sets out to immortalize this courtship in a series of paintings, she learns a lesson that will change her outlook on life and love forevermore.
A fine read
This is not my favorite book by this author, but I still enjoyed reading it. Not quite the typical love story-- I definitely thought it would go a different direction-- but was pleasantly surprised by the way it turned out. Self examination, what really matters in life, understanding people on a deeper level, including yourself. A fairly quick feel good read.
