About the Book

Book: Landmark
Author: Pamela Poole
Genre: Inspired Southern Fiction
Release Date: July 2019

A daydream. A dance. A dangerous rendezvous.

After graduating college and arriving home to Painter Place in the summer of 1960, a young bachelor named Wyeth Painter dreams of living a quiet life. But his father sends him to London to teach an art class where he meets and falls for model Chrissy Carnet, an American from D.C. By the time he discovers the stunning young lady’s father is a fearsome international spy who brought them together, Wyeth’s heart is in chaos.

But Chrissy is determined to follow him and daydreams of creating a home on his island. With the Island Summer Dance looming ahead, Wyeth tries to protect Painter Place from any danger her presence might bring. Will Wyeth force himself to get over her, or can both their dreams intertwine and come true?

MyThoughts:  I truly adored this series!   Pamela Poole not only creates with mixed media but with words, to present the reader a storyline that they can truly become a part of.  I felt so welcome in this family and it's how the characters are presented.  A warm loving God-centered family who raise their children to love God first; then love their family and keep them close.   I enjoyed the way the author brought us to Whitehaven in the 1960s to learn more about how Phillip, Andy, and Wyeth grew up and met their spouses.   The ending was incredible and brings the whole series together; giving some answers to questions the readers may have in the previous books.   This novel can stand alone to be read, it can be read first if you like, or you can read the series in sequence.  Whichever way you chose to read it, the important thing is to read it.

This is a book that is based on Christian values in many different situations.   It is a must-read.  I look forward to reading more from Pamela Poole.

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.
