From Publishers Weekly:

Sarah Morgan's artistic talent is the focus of this familiar saga of one woman's notable achievements. Sarah's loving family is shattered by WW I, and when she takes refuge in marriage to a young art teacher, she is more smothered than nurtured by his reverence. With the stillbirth of their daughter, Sarah leaves her husband and their small Welsh mining town for art school in London and a memorably bohemian summer in Paris. Sarah prospers, becoming London's most sought after society portraitist, though at the same time she feels emotionally unfulfilled. This time, it is Stephen Law, a brilliant man of letters, who offers refuge. With a move to New Mexico, Sarah and Stephen flourish individually, artistically, and as a married couple, though a bittersweet ending is in store. Although this narrative follows a worn path, Sarah is a strong and independent woman whose story will sustain the reader's interest.

From Library Journal:

In this post-World War I novel, Sarah Morgan, unhappy at home, marries the teacher who has been the only person to value and develop her artistic abilities. When her marriage proves empty, she leaves her Welsh mining village for London and Paris. Art lessons and painting commissions result in financial success and social standing. She and an aspiring writer travel to New Mexico, where both achieve artistic and personal happiness. Because James is a deft writer, the story glides along and sustains interest, particularly in Sarah. But the obstacles to success fall a bit too easily and numerous loose ends are left dangling. For readers who like historical romances with emphasis on the romance. Kathy Piehl, Mankato State Univ., Minn.
