The Woman in the Painting

by Amanda Roberts

The ring is the key to Hannah’s future, but first she must unlock its past.

1645: A widow of nearly two years, Catherine is content with a quiet life looking after her young daughter, until she catches the eye of a wealthy Royalist. He gives her a unique, engraved ring as a talisman for good luck, but these are turbulent times. As she is drawn into a secret relationship she finds herself pitted against his family and her own father, caught in a deadly battle of wills driven by the ambitions of men, from which no-one can emerge victorious.

2019: When Hannah finds the ring buried in her garden, she is fascinated and intrigued. Who had owned it and how had they lost it? Focused on peeling back the layers of history, Hannah doesn’t realise that a web of deceit is tightening around her. Then a series of events threaten her security and warn her that she may not be the only one interested in the ring. 

The Woman in the Painting is a novel about human relationships, a heart-breaking tale of love and loss, perfect for fans of Lucinda Riley and Barbara Erskine.


"Roberts’ dedication to researching this era is evident in the enchanting prose and fascinating narrative."
~ Mary Anne Yarde, The Coffee Pot Book Club

"Both time lines are extremely well researched, which gives great authenticity to the experiences of the two main characters. There is such a powerful sense of place and Amanda enriches the two tales with intense sensory description that has you walking with the characters every step of the way."
