A novel of crime and passion in nineteenth-century Newfoundland. Alexander Pindikowsky, a Polish artist working in Heart's Content, is arrested in 1880 for the crime of forgery. He is sentenced to fifteen months at Her Majesty's Penitentiary in St. John's. Governor John Hawley Glover, when made aware of Pindikowsky's talent, arranges for the prisoner to serve part of his sentence in a most unusual way--designing and painting ceiling frescoes at Government House. Ellen Dormody, a parlour maid at Government House, witnesses first-hand the brilliance of Alexander's artistry. She is at once captivated by the mysterious painter. Inspired by true events, Art Love Forgery is a story of forbidden love in nineteenth-century St. John's, a legend that lives on within the walls and ceilings of Government House.
