The Masterpiece Reviews
A beautifully written story about heartache ,disappointment, fear, abandonment and above all the glorious love Jesus has for us all !!
While I really did want to love Francine River’s latest, like I have so many of her other books, this one fell flat for me. I was intrigued by the idea and the characters, but there were a few other things that made it hard for me to love this one.
I thought there were some unnecessary stereotypes with some of the characters and I also wanted her friends to be a bit more than they were. Some were one dimensional and with others, their actions were a bit confusing. Not that characters need to ...more
5 wonderful stars for this one! It’s been 4 yrs since I’ve read a Francine Rivers novel and I have really missed her writing. This was sooooo good.
I felt like she was telling my story. My childhood was filled with drugs, alcohol, physical and mental abuse. My testimony was similar in so many ways. I was a runaway teenager living in LA with a stripper when I finally said yes to Christ.
If you love the Lord and live in grace, then you’ll love this story as much as I do. The romance and character ...more
I translated this book into Afrikaans and what a privilege it has been. Another fantastic book by one of my favorite authors. Loved the honesty of the characters' struggles and seeing that dependence on God alone will always lead to the blessings He has for us.
I listened to the audio version of The Materpiece and I truly enjoyed the story. Francine Rivers did an excellent job creating the characters and designing plot as well as weaving in a very meaningful spiritual message. Very well done and highly recommended.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago
First Sentence: Roman Velasco climbed the fire escape and swung over the wall onto the flat roof.
I'm always in awe when I see how God use different types of media and experiences to teach us and show us what He wants from us.
Over the years, I've experienced this a lot with most of the books by Francine Rivers.
The Masterpiece is no different - showing God' ...more
I am really not a big fan of this style but t was still a good book. Just not my preference.
I am still in a book fog after reading The Masterpiece.
It was such a moving love story and Rivers has really done her research on art part of the book. She tells about that at the end of the book. The characters were strong and the storyline remarkable. I loved the way it all turns out, I was on the fence for a while.
I challenge you to put this down once you start reading it. I think it will be one you read without realizing you have read the book in one evening.
Rivers has done it again another ...more
