I was given a copy of The Earth Painter by Melissa Turner Lee to read and review. I was immediately captivated by the title. THE EARTH PAINTER...... I found the whole concept that someone had painted the earth enchanting!!!
Holly the main character is dealing with the pressures of a controlling mother who is all about the superficial. And Holly plays along... Until she meets Theo, The Earth Painter, and he makes her see herself differently. Theo is cute and caring, and that smile and those dimples!!!*Sigh* Holly's Character develops and grows throughout the book as do her feelings for Theo. And through all of that they join together to fight the obstacles that they encounter along the way.
I loved the support characters associated with Theo and they were like nothing I had ever read in any other book.
Once I started reading The Earth Painter I just couldn't put it down!! My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next installment. I can't wait to see where this story goes!!
I urge you all to get yourself a copy of this book. You will not be disappointed!!
