The Painter: A novel

The Painter: A novel - Peter Heller My heart broke throughout this book for this broken man trying to redeem himself from his past. This is a man who knows the value of beauty - the beauty of nature and the beauty of artistic creation. But violence and misfortune stalk him in his quest for serenity.

So beautifully written, this novel will both entrance you with its poetry while it has you sitting on the edge of your seat with its suspense. I wish I had just a few moments of Mr. Heller's talent so I could write a review that's fitting to his wondrous book. Highly recommended.
