"From bestselling author Diane Chamberlain comes an irresistible new novel. North Carolina, 2018: Morgan Christopher's life has been derailed. Taking the fall for a crime she did not commit, she finds herself serving a three-year stint in the North Carolina Women's Correctional Center. Her dream of a career in art is put on hold-until a mysterious visitor makes her an offer that will see her released immediately. Her assignment: restore an old post office mural in a sleepy southern town. Morgan knows nothing about art restoration, but desperate to leave prison, she accepts. What she finds under the layers of grime is a painting that tells the story of madness, violence, and a conspiracy of small town secrets. North Carolina, 1940: Anna Dale, an artist from New Jersey, wins a national contest to paint a mural for the post office in Edenton, North Carolina. Alone in the world and desperate for work, she accepts. But what she doesn't expect is to find herself immersed in a town where prejudices run deep, where people are hiding secrets behind closed doors, and where the price of being different might just end in murder. What happened to Anna Dale? Are the clues hidden in the decrepit mural? Can Morgan overcome her own demons to discover what exists beneath the layers of lies?"--… (més)

So I haven’t read many books by Diane Chamberlain, and I’m honestly wondering why I haven’t, especially after this book. I was completely drawn in almost immediately by main character Morgan and the unexpected offer that falls at her feet. Who, in their right mind, would say no to it?
The story takes place in 2 separate times-Anna in 1940 and Morgan in 2018. Morgan is in prison and is approached with an offer she can’t refuse. The daughter of a famous painter has named her in his will as the person to restore a painting that was never hung due to the original artist (Anna) having some issues. Although Morgan knows nothing about restoration, she jumps on the offer.
The way the women’s stories intertwine make this a fascinating and mysterious read. The plot isn’t completely original and they were things that occur that are expected but overall the way it was written makes the reader feel like they are actually watching the two women living in the two different decades.

Pandemic read. Learned a lot about painting restoration and a refresher course on racism in the south in the last century. I wish I could say that it was entirely a thing of the past, but as is abundantly clear, we have a long way to go. Though interestingly, in the liner notes, it seems the actual town where this is set is working hard to eliminate it and to build a healthy community. Bravo. ( )

Two timelines of artists in different eras who ran into trouble in Edenton, NC. The first is an artist painting a Post Office mural; the second is serving time for a crime she did not commit. She is released from prison early so that she can restore the first artist’s mural. Well written and engrossing. Hard to put down. ( )

The children knew it was finally spring, so although the air still held the nip of winter and the grass and weeds crunched beneath their feet, they ran through the fields and woods, yipping with the anticipation of warmer weather.
