More from Pamela

Hi, I’m Pamela Poole, and I live an amazing life as an artist and author! What makes my life amazing isn’t the things I get to do. It’s the scope of experiences, from devasating to incredibly wonderful, that are used by Christ to weave my story and make it one worth telling and living.
Have you ever noticed that people entertain themselves at the expense of the sufferring of others? What about the book you’re currently reading? Would you be interested in the story if the author didn’t drag the characters through excruciating ordeals so they could grow into a better person? We tend to pray for protection from trouble for ourselves and loved ones, then we relish reading or watching others as they cope with it. Their stories are the ones we find amazing. What irony!
In my latest novel, Landmark, I take readers back to the year 1960 to journey with the Painter and Gregoy families as they navigate through trouble on the verge of a tumultuous new decade. Their efforts to do the right things as they walk with Christ will not eliminate the valuable struggle ahead of them. Like other novels in the saga, Landmark is a nostalgic, entertaining, and wholesome story, yet it is packed with meaningful insights that encourage us as we set up our own landmarks to mark the times when Jesus was faithful through our struggles.
Landmark is the first book in the saga chronologically.


It was so nice to travel back to the 1960's and find out about characters as they grew up in this charming series. I love how the author captures the innocence and curiosity of the characters who would one day be important in the art and business world. I found it interesting that the author chose to write this story as the fourth in the series. It gives us a glimpse how the characters met and remind us of how much faith is an important part of their lives.

The beautiful backdrop of Painter's Place is the perfect setting for this enchanting saga. I loved reading about Wyeth and how he matured into a very gifted artist. His romance with Christy is quite intriguing and helped me understand the emotions they went through. It was refreshing to see how important it was to have a relationship that followed God's plan. At times I could feel the struggle they had which helps readers see that everyone faces hard decisions at times. 

As with the other books in the series, we get an added bonus of a mystery that was fun to follow. The addition of Christy's dad as a spy was indeed a twist for me. How would you like to be in a family where bodyguards were always around? It was hard for Christy to be alone with Wyeth as she always had someone watching. This part of the story brought a unique look at a family that had secrets to hide. I wonder if Wyeth knew what he was getting into when he started dating Christy? 

The story is emotional, filled with faith and gives readers a glimpse inside how it all started in this well written series. You can tell over the last three books how much the author has grown in her craft. Each book is stronger and never sways from details that make you feel as if you are there watching the story unfold. I love how she has become more creative and descriptive in the stories. This is a book you will want to read and get inspired by the faith element in the story.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
