Review: The Masterpiece

The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers
Reviewed by: Mary-Ann Bell
Genre: Christian Fiction
Publisher: Tyndale
Publication Date: February 6, 2018

In her latest novel, Francine Rivers brings us Roman Velasco, a well-to-do artist who could have anything money can buy, except peace and contentment. Using graffiti to deal with his hurt and emotions, running from foster home to foster home as a child, Roman aka Bobby Ray Dean (the bird) is haunted by his past as a graffiti tagger.

Roman hires Grace as his personal assistant to help free up his time so he can concentrate on painting, but little does she knows about Roman’s alter-ego, Bobby Ray Dean. Grace is dealing with her own secrets. Recovering from a bad marriage, Grace vows never to let a man hurt her again, but as they get to know one another the pieces begin to come together that alter the course of their lives.

Francine Rivers has done a superb job writing this novel. She has created intriguing characters that every reader can relate to. The author has run with an idea of how a childhood trauma can impact adult life; how two broken individuals can find completeness together. The author also brings out the issues of how we as persons can fall into traps and be thrown into worldly ways, only to suffer the consequences of our actions.

She also points out that we are saved by grace and that God loves us, and sometimes, some of us need to realize there is a hell in order to hear and understand the truth.

The Masterpiece is a wonderful novel that the reader will not be able to put down. It is well-written and keeps the reader wanting more.

Rated PG-13: The book deals with adult situations
