At thirty-five, Gabriella Graham--"Ella" to her family and friends--has already made a name for herself as a successful portrait artist in London. She can capture the essential truth in each of her subjects' faces--a tilt of the chin, a glint in the eye--and immortalize it on canvas. This gift has earned Ella commissions from royals and regular folks alike. Ella realizes that there is so much more to a person's life than what is seen on the surface, a notion made even clearer when an unexpected email arrives from the other side of the world. And as her portraits progress, they begin to reveal less about their subjects than the artist herself.
