Set in Florence in the late 15th century: Alessandra's parents arrange a marriage for her, to a wealthy older man, when she is almost fifteen. This complicates the relationship that she's begun to form with a young painter from northern Europe. The painter is decorating the chapel walls in Alessandra's family's palazzo.
This love triangle takes place against the backdrop of the most dramatic, eventful period in Florence's history. The book's cover notes that the story combines "love, art, religion and power".
If you like historical fiction, this book is for you!
