April Book Club Selection

2 Apr

I am very excited about By The Book’s next selection, The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers. Rivers is a favorite author of ours, and we make sure to read all of her releases. I’ve already read it and loved, loved it. Can’t wait to discuss it with my group . . . and you! Have you read it yet? Make sure to let us know your thoughts.

New York Times bestselling 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.

New York Times bestselling author Francine Rivers continues to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her numerous bestsellers include Redeeming Love, A Voice in the Wind, and Bridge to Haven, and her work has been translated into more than thirty different languages. She is a member of Romance Writers of America’s coveted Hall of Fame as well as a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW).

    I’ve been wanting to read this story for a while now. I’ve just started listening to the audiobook. The beginning has drawn me in and I can’t wait to read more. 🙂

      I listened to the audiobook too. But when I was 2 hours away from the en, I could not wait. So I borrowed a friends hard copy and read it to finish. I really, really liked it.
