Review: The Painter's Daughter

          `The Painter's Daughter` is written by Julie Klassen who tends to have well thought out novels. She is also author of `The Secret of Pembrooke Park. You may find my review for that novel here. This novel is historical fiction dated 1815. I read this novel for entertainment. One character, Sophie Dupont, who is pregnant, a young man, Captain Stephen Overtree, who wants to give the baby a name, and his brother, Wesley Overtree. Plus several secondary characters worth the mention. My favorite secondary character is Winnie, Sophia's nurse, she informs Sophie not to grow old or she will lose her memory.
            `The Painter's Daughter` would make a great book club choice, although there are only 10 questions in the questions for discussion section. The book club would have to come up with more questions. However, they are meaty questions, so the club could discuss one or two a week. If you like this book you may also like books by Wanda Brunstetter.
