Portrait of Charlotte

portrait of charlotte

 

A young artist in Whitby falls in love with his subject, but she is married. In an attempt to forget her he returns home to Whitby but events overtake them as the story unfolds against the background of the hazards of the whaling trade, the Lincolnshire countryside and the London art world.

’...a book which is difficult to put down.’ Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph

Pretty Charlotte Campion is adored by her older husband Charles, and cherished by her wealthy parents. With Charles away on business, Charlotte's parents take her to Whitby, where a chance encounter with Richard Parker changes her life. Charlotte's father commissions Richard to paint her portrait, and invites him back to London with them. But then Richard and Charlotte fall in love, and Richard, fearful of the social ruin, decides to part with the woman he loves. He returns to Whitby and adopts the hazardous whaling life he has previously shunned. Charlotte cannot accept their separation and follows him, battling with convention to become an independent woman.
