Daily Mail Online review for The Painter’s Apprentice

It’s been a good week for reviews. The Daily Mail Online said that The Painter’s Apprentice is a highly-recommended novel. Here is the review:

Another follow-up novel, The Painter’s Apprentice takes up the story of Beth Ambrose, daughter of Susannah, Charlotte Betts’s main protagonist in The Apothecary’s Daughter.

Brought up in a loving family, but living in a lunatic asylum which her step-father runs, Beth is a gifted artist.  But her world is rocked when a cousin from Virginia brings an unexpected proposition to the family.

Set at the time of the Glorious Revolution, when England is still beset by religious rivalries, this is a highly-recommended novel of love, tragedy, and the power of art.
