This sumptuous novel features famous Renaissance art works and artists such as Michelangelo and his David. The author paints a portrait of the age with its political factions and invading kings, along with lavish banquets and boisterous feast days. Now all has passed but the great works of art remain, speaking to us of pain, joy, sorrow, sin, redemption and holiness, pointing the way to riches which cannot be seen or possessed on this earth.
Here is an article by Donna Russo Morin about her travels and discoveries in Italy. She writes about Florence, HERE.
