"A glittering Renaissance gem of a singular. Donna Russo Morin, a grasp of her craft, has penned an elaborate tale packed with lush old aspect with a plot that would depart you breathless." —Tasha Alexander, New York Times bestselling writer of Death in St. Petersburg
In her ultimate standalone novel that includes Da Vinci's Disciples, Donna Russo Morin gives you an exhilarating tale of the key lady artists of Florence, less than the tutelage of Leonardo Da Vinci, and their heroic, almost certainly lethal efforts to avoid wasting nice artworks from the notorious Bonfire of the Vanities.
"Illicit plots, mysterious work, and Leonardo da Vinci all have their half to play during this scrumptious, heart-pounding work." —Kate Quinn, New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of The Alice Network
Lorenzo de Medici is lifeless, and his son Piero has introduced struggle and famine upon town of Florence. but, the honour that's Renaissance artistry grows extra fantastic, as does the paintings of the ladies often called Da Vinci's Disciples. Now they face their most deadly problem, one shrouded within the cloak of a monk.
From the ashes of battle, Friar Girolamo Savonarola rises. a few name him a savior and a prophet, a guy keen to overthrow tyrannical rulers and corrupt clergy, the Borgia Pope between them. Fra Girolamo is decided to remold Florence from an avaricious, secular tradition to a paragon of Christian virtues.
Many name Savonarola a delusional heretic, incapable of whatever yet self-serving fanaticism. whilst he units out to ruin all secular paintings types, Da Vinci's Disciples name him an enemy … yet now not all of them.
"Like a wonderful Italian fresco-richly textured and vividly portrayed … hugely suggested for fanatics of heritage, artwork, and brave women." —Anna Lee Huber, bestselling writer of the woman Darby Mysteries
"Donna Russo Morin renders some of the most tumultuous sessions in Florence's background in brilliant colours and with brilliant descriptions. This story of a bunch of made up our minds girls status up for what they think in … will completely resonate with glossy readers." —Alyssa Palombo, writer of The most lovely lady in Florence
