I have trouble classifying this as a Romance novel or Women's Fiction because Wuthering Heights is my only basis for comparison. I know little about those genres.
I was moved by this book because the characters showed me what was in their hearts and after closing the book I felt a sense of loss,...

Brilliant, beautiful, and heartwarming story about love in all it's wondrous facets. Borum's use of color and imagery, inspired by the snippets of painting advice laced throughout the book, make the novel rich, vibrant, and alive with feeling. Each quote of artistic instruction to start the chapt...

This was a fun light read that I would classify as women's fiction. The characters has enough depth to keep it from slipping into 'chick lit' territory. It's set in England and is about a great niece who inherits her aunt's estate in England. Her aunt had some secrets that her niece, Noelle, slow...
