4.0 out of 5 stars Charming romance 3 Oct 2010
By Gabriela Popa - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely novella-long romance set up in the French countryside. It's atmospheric, rather than plot-driven, and offers to the reader an accessible world, easy to approach and recognize. Purple Lake offers glimpses in an artist's mind and heart, and allows you to feel Daphne Coleridge's passion for painting and art in general. This is a pleasant read and a great choice for a quiet weekend when you have time for yourself and can spend time in the company of two enjoyable characters, Amelia and Alan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely art romance 8 Oct 2010
By Christa Polkinhorn - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Purple Lake is another one of Daphne Coleridge's charming novellas about art and love. Heartbroken Amelia escapes from a love gone bad and tries to find peace in a village in the French countryside and devote her time to painting. Across from her cottage, the French painter Alain lives an isolated life after a past of loss and pain. Their common interest in the arts brings them together and soon the feelings they develop for each other go beyond friendship. But, as in all true romances, there are all kinds of complications. Amelia and Allain are flawed but loveable and convincing characters. Their feelings are vividly portrayed and we can relate to them and sympathize with the characters. As in The Artist's Model, Coleridges earlier novella, the authors greatest strength lies in her beautiful and lively descriptions of the French and English countryside, which allow the reader to see the environment through a painter's eyes. Purple Lake like The Artist's Model shows Daphne Coleridges passion for painting and the arts. A lovely book for those times when you want something positive to read.
