Today on Nitty Gritty Romance, we are featuring the fabulous Rachael Richey! Rachael takes a moment during this busy holiday season to tell us what happiness is to her…
A Frosty Morning Walk
I find there’s nothing better than waking up to a crisp clear winter morning when the sun is shining and the frost is thick on the ground. We had a morning like that recently, and I took the opportunity to slip out for half an hour with my camera and make the most of it. Not much makes me happier than long walks in the country on my own. It’s one of the best ways to come up with new ideas for stories, and on a beautiful still cold morning it was perfect.
We’re very lucky to live opposite a large expanse of Forestry Commission land, and I managed to get some lovely pictures including this one of a frosty fir tree by a small pond, that reminded me just how close to Christmas we were getting. It was lovely to see the Christmas trees growing in the wild, and my early morning walk really put a spring in my step for the rest of the day.
Here’s Rachael’s newest release!
The Girl in the Painting
While her husband Gideon is recording a new album with his band NightHawk, Abi Hawk is busy getting her own career as a portrait painter back on track. Following the death of her father, which coincides with the opening night of her first exhibition in London, Abi and her daughter come across an old painting in his attic that sets them on a journey of discovery to Paris. They uncover an astonishing and unexpected love story, one that has repercussions to the present day. Meanwhile Gideon, in America to promote the new album, ignores Abi’s warnings and manages to put himself in a vulnerable situation that threatens to rock the stability of their marriage. Separated from Abi by nearly five thousand miles, and unable to speak to her, will he be able to resolve the situation before any real damage is done?
