About the Author
Traci Borum is a writing teacher and native Texan. She’s also an avid reader of women’s fiction, most especially Elin Hilderbrand and Rosamunde Pilcher novels. Since the age of 12, she’s written poetry, short stories, magazine articles, and novels. Traci also adores all things British. She even owns a British dog (Corgi) and is completely addicted to Masterpiece Theater–must be all those dreamy accents! Aside from having big dreams of getting a book published, it’s the little things that make her the happiest: deep talks with friends, a strong cup of hot chocolate, a hearty game of fetch with her Corgi, and puffy white Texas clouds always reminding her to “look up, slow down, enjoy your life.”

There was a section after the first part of the story after Noelle arrived in England that moved unbearably slow for me. Small mundane details that don't move the story forward bore me. I tend to associate this with Women's Lit, however, it is a personal grievance of my own and I know some readers enjoy those details. My favorite parts of the story were the insightful snippets at the beginning of each chapter in which Aunt Joy issued wise nuggets of advice to Noelle about artistic technique, perspective, texture and life itself.
Otherwise, I found the storyline compelling and the main characters were well developed. Jill provided a good sounding block for Noelle, while going through life changing events of her own, and Adam provided sexual tension, with the regret of missed opportunities from the past. This story contains romantic elements, however I would hesitate to call it a romance because we are not privy to Adam's perspective aside from a third person narration. The two story arcs compounded Noelle's journey of self-discovery while trying to uncover the mystery behind her Aunt Joy's last years of reclusiveness and the symbol added to the last group of paintings found hidden behind the locked cottage door.
