Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Francine Rivers returns to her romance roots with this unexpected and redemptive love story, a probing tale that reminds us that mercy can shape even the most broken among us into an imperfect yet stunning masterpiece.

A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want - money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has.

The demons of Roman's past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn't know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist - an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison.

Like Roman, Grace is wrestling with ghosts and secrets of her own. After a disastrous marriage threw her life completely off course, she vowed never to let love steal her dreams again. But as she gets to know the enigmatic man behind the reputation, it's as if the jagged pieces of both of their pasts slowly begin to fit together...until something so unexpected happens that it changes the course of their relationship - and both their lives - forever.

I LOVE IT! Next to The Mark of the Lion Series this has to be my favorite Francine Rivers book to date. Absolutely amazing! The way in which Francine Rivers thoroughly develops her characters and how they interact with the world around them is so dynamic. As college student majoring in Studio Art drawing and painting, l I felt such strong identification with the two main Characters! Highly recommend this book.

A cracking storyline

The obvious and melodramatic language made me cringe throughout but the storyline was cracking. As always Francine Rivers encouraged me to looks further at my faith and point to God as I read her fiction

Slightly obvious but really enjoyable

The plot/end became quite obvious early on in the book but still really enjoyed the story. Francine Rivers is one of the best Christian novelists around in my opinion

Review of The Masterpiece

This book was a beautiful read! It spoke of the love of God coming above all else and the way it portrayed redemption was beautiful for our day and age. The narrater was great at displaying the emotion behind the book and did a great job at being sensitive to the emotion.

Brilliant

Totally engaging and rich with imagery and truths that will inspire you and those you share this story with. Enjoyed listening to this with my wife as time together sharing an emotional journey and connection. Lots of discussion starters and reminders of our story and love.
