The third unforgettable historical love story set in Italy from
Marina Fiorato, author of the bestseller THE GLASSBLOWER OF MURANO.
For fans of Philippa Gregory, Sarah Dunant and Alison Weir.
Florence looks like gold and smells like sulphur ...In the
colourful world of fifteenth-century Italy, Luciana Vetra is young
and beautiful, a part-time model and full-time whore. When she is
asked to pose as the goddess Flora for Sandro Botticelli's painting
La Primavera, she is willing to oblige - until the artist abruptly
sends her away without payment. Affronted, she steals an unfinished
version of the painting - only to find that someone is ready to
kill her to get it back. As friends and associates are murdered
around her, Luciana turns to the one man who has never tried to
exploit her beauty, Brother Guido della Torre, a novice at the
monastery of Santa Croce. Fleeing Florence together, Luciana and
Guido race through the nine great cities of Renaissance Italy,
desperately trying to decode the painting's secrets before their
enemies stop them.
