The Masterpiece Reviews
This book took me a while to read...but it was worth it! A touching story of overcoming adversity.
As Adele would say, reading a new book by Francine Rivers feels like home. “It’s like a dream come true.”
“The Masterpiece” has her footprint in every page. The well-developed concept of the book, the complexity of each character, and the message of redemption going through the story are very distinctive in her writing, and we can see all of that in this book as well.
Grace seems to be perfect in the midst of all her imperfection, as usually happens with the main female characters this author cre ...more
Boys meets girl. They fall in love and live happily ever after. So simple, right? Not if Francine Rivers has anything to say about it!
For years, Rivers has faithfully produced stories that tug at our heartstrings...works like “A Voice in the Wind” and “When the Shofar Blew”. Most recently, “A Bridge to Haven”. Now, in her book that is set to release in January 2018, she is back and yes, still producing love stories that are both agonizing and glorious.
“The Masterpiece” follows two main character ...more
Grace Moore is a young woman with a young baby, Samuel and recently divorced. She was going to have Samuel adopted because she couldn't provide for him. However, when she held Samuel in her arms she couldn't let him go.

Desperate to provide for her son she took a job as an assistant for Mr. Velasco. I really liked Grace. She loved her son deeply an ...more
What a wonderful book! Francine Rivers is an excellent writer. The cover of the book was very intriguing to me. In the back of the book is an explanation of how this cover came to be.
The events in this story were very current to the times today. The two main characters, Roman and Grace had so many obstacles in their lives.
Even though I suspected it, I learned how dangerous a life can be when influenced by a gang. Also, how dangerous and deadly it is to take drugs. Roman was exposed to these bad ...more
I must confess, I was a little bit apprehensive about reading this book once I found out the author was a born again Christian. After the first 30 pages I was sucked in. The main characters are so well developed and their stories compelling. I couldn’t put the book down. The religious stuff gets heavier in the last 100 pages but for a non Christian it was interesting to see the strength of “believers”
She needed a job and he needed an assistant.
Rowan is an artist and also a thief.
Grace is a single mother trying to get through each day.
Graves Christian lifestyle slowly rubs off on Rowan and he starts to question things in his past and what hes doing now and why hes doing these things.
They are both a little lost and maybe together they will find their way.
I could write a novel just reviewing Rivers masterpiece each novel has so much detail and instantly makes me fall in love with the c ...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.
