Mark Romangabout this book: The Grace Painter is about a missing NYPD hostage negotiator, presumed to be dead, who steps out from the shadows to rescue a kidnapped child. The protagonist, Matthew London, has never forgiven himself for a past mistake. Regret rules his life. And the only way he can mollify his inner demons is by painting Renaissance-style paintings and murals inside a declining plantation house where he lives.
For eight years London lives like a hermit in rural Louisiana, always looking over his shoulder and wondering if someone will find out who he really is. But then a little girl is kidnapped in his parish, and London risks discovery for a chance to help rescue the child.
The Grace Painter is a Christian suspense novel that should appeal to anyone who enjoys fast-paced, action-filled novels. The takeaway message of the book is that living in the past hinders our future. Hanging on to past mistakes and not learning to forgive ourselves sabotages our happiness and cripples our ability to live a productive life.
