Review of Silent Faces, Painted Ghosts

This isn't in a genre that I regularly venture into, being probably best described as 'family drama', but it's good to have a change and I really enjoyed Silent Faces, Painted Ghosts by Kathy Shuker.

It's a well-written current-day tale of human relationships: sometimes loving, sometimes jealous, sometimes violent. There’s a strong cast of well-drawn characters and the world of the reclusive, but famous, portrait painter felt authentic. The central character is driven by the basic human need to belong and to feel at peace. It all takes place under the shadow of a past tragic event, the truth of which slowly emerges.
The Provence setting is captured beautifully; I could smell the lavender and feel the mistral blowing through what’s left of my hair.
It’s a satisfying read.
