1765. Filipo di Vecellio of Florence, portrait painter, is the
toast of London: rich, successful, and married to Angelica, known
as the most beautiful woman in the city. Their Pall Mall home is
the hub of the art world; their impressive social gatherings run so
smoothly by Filipo's silent sister, Francesca. But beneath the
surface, the house conceals a swarm of dangerous secrets.Where does
Francesca di Vecellio go as the sun sets over Covent Garden? And
why are there always candles lit in her attic, while no candles
burn for her brother's exquisite wife? Within the bustling artistic
lives of the di Vecellios hides corruption and lies; love and
tragedy. And wild ambition unbalances the capital's art world as,
finally, a wonderful portrait battles for the right to paint the
truth . . .
