Every painting tells a story. The trick is in unlocking its secrets.
Discover the thrilling tale of a 16th-century female artist—and the scholar who risks everything to unearth her story.
Born during a time wracked by war and plague, Renaissance-era artist Mira grows up in a Pyrenees convent believing she is an orphan. When tragedy strikes, Mira learns the devastating truth about her own origins—and finds the strength to face those who would destroy her.
500 years later, art scholar Zari finds traces of a mysterious young woman named Mira in two 16th-century portraits. Obsessed, Zari tracks Mira through the great cities of Europe all the way to the pilgrim’s route of Camino de Santiago—and is stunned by what she finds. But will her discovery be enough to bring Mira’s story to life?
