Last year while on vacationing in Savannah Lars Cargill bought a small watercolor painting of a woman called, Lady and the Sea, for his estate in England. There is something about the woman in the painting that captivates him. Determined to locate the woman, he returns to Savannah and approaches the artists. But Abilene Dupree insists there is no such woman, she made her up. Lars does not believe her and won't leave her alone. Does the elusive woman exist or just an artistic rendering?
Artist Abilene Dupree loves painting and is busy making a living as an artist and art teacher as well as selling her commercial art but not her personal life stories within her paintings. Her peaceful days are shattered when the handsome and charming Britisher admires her work—flattering to be sure—but then he becomes a bit irritating. Over time they form a friendship of sorts and she lets her guard down a tiny bit. They actually share some things in common, their faith for one thing, which was surprising at first. However, something from the past may break that fragile friendship when Lars must leave Savannah suddenly and return to England. Will he return or is their budding love over before it really began?
I enjoyed watching as Lars and Abilene got to know each other and their love grew. There was a few surprises that Abilene was not expecting which opened her eyes to Lars' true character. But then another shocking surprise that left doubts and fears for both Abilene and Lars. I like how they turned to God and prayer for guidance. A heartwarming story.
(~I also received an e-book from the author, (no monetary gain were exchanged), this is my honest review~)
Draw Me Near has wonderful Christian characters that live out their faith in everyday life. The author painted a tender, touching story, and I look forward to reading more books by Jan Thompson.
His uncanny need to find this woman has caused Abilene irritation. Why can't he just go back home and leave her alone? Slowly Lars begins to build a friendship with Abilene , but still insists that she tell him who the woman is in the painting. Why is Abilene so secretive about the painting? Abilene is guarded with her feelings for him, but slowly her heart begins to open to a relationship with him.
Lars soon is mesmerized by the gift Abilene has for painting pictures that captures true beauty and visits the Simons Gallery where her art is displayed. As their relationship starts to thrive , there is an unexpected visitor that could change their lives forever. Will Abilene still want to be with Lars when she finds out who this visitor is?
The author has written a story that shares a deep relationship with Christ between both Abilene and Lars. This foundation will draw them closer to each other as they both express their trust in Him for their future. The scriptures that the author has throughout the book is placed perfectly to blend with the story. I was impressed with the way the story flowed with grace and gradually built a mutual attraction between the characters. Lars had said to Abilene "your paintings linger long in my mind after I've seen them." When I read that line, I though how His words linger in our mind and how a story that is written so well, will linger with you forever. The author has written a touching story that will stay with you long after the last word is read. Let the story linger with you and touch you with love, grace and hope.
