The FAMILY PORTRAIT trilogy follows the lives of two artists—Karla, a painter, and Andreas, a their families as they try to keep the flame of love and creativity alive through turbulent times. The story takes place in Switzerland, Italy, the United States, and Peru with a short excursion to France.
AN UNCOMMON FAMILY, Book 1: Three people with a troubled past meet in Zurich, Switzerland. Sixyearold Karla longs for her dead mother. Anna struggles with her former husband’s deception, and Jonas mourns the death of his wife. While trying to help Karla, a talented but troubled child, Anna and Jonas develop feelings for each other that go beyond friendship. The budding romance, however, hits a snag when Anna discovers a sinister secret in Jonas’s past.
LOVE OF A STONEMASON, Book 2: Karla, the young talented painter, who lost her mother in a car crash, is almost run over by a car herself. As if this wasn’t fateful enough, the driver turns out to be a sculptor and carver of tombstones. Andreas O’Reilly, however, is anything but morbid. Quicktempered and passionate, he exudes a roughandtumble energy. After a tumultuous start of their relationship, Karla comes to see in Andreas the “rock” in her life. Andreas, however, wrestles with his own ghosts: an alcoholic father who abused him as a child and his own fits of anger. Together, the two artists must confront the demons that haunt them.
EMILIA, Book 3: The O’Reilly household is in trouble. With her two older children, Laura and Tonio, grown and getting ready to fly the coop, Karla finds out she is pregnant again. Instead of furthering her painting career, she has to raise another child. Andreas looks forward to being a father once more but the little bundle of joy, Emilia, instead of enhancing the relationship to his wife intensifies the tension that has been building between them. While the parents fight, Laura and Tonio try to keep the peace. But more challenges wait in the wings: Andreas...
