'Beautifully rendered and highly recommended ' - Historical Novel Review
Seville, 1489: Diego Sanchis is Seville's most famous painter; his glorious art fills every church in the famous city.
But for all the beauty in his soul, Diego himself is no oil painting. He sees beauty everywhere - until he looks in the mirror. He is resigned to a life of solitude.
Until one day he is asked to take on a new student.Mercedes Goncalvez is the most desired young woman in the city, and her father is rich and powerful. They are so utterly different - but they discover their souls are the same.
But these are dangerous days to defy convention. The dungeons of the Inquisition wait for anyone who will not bend the knee, and betrayal can come at any time, from anywhere...A novel of passion, art and genius from internationally bestselling author, Colin Falconer, set in Seville and Granada, during the last days of the fabled Alhambra.
'History and romance combine in this highly entertaining novel. I fell in love with Diego and his biting sarcasm and propensity to be bluntly honest. He is real, loveable, and easy to sympathize with. Likewise is Mercedes who struggles to break through the norms of the era to become an artist by her own right.
