1508. In Rome, artists are feted as gods, and women must know their place.
Margarita may be the modest daughter of a baker, but when she falls in love with painter Raphael she finds herself playing a dangerous game.
For Raphael is wanted for greater things than a humble marriage, and there are those who will do anything to keep him and Margarita apart – no matter the consequences…
Inspired by a heartbreaking true story, this stunning and evocative novel is perfect for fans of The Sapphire Widow, Beneath a Burning Sky and The Emerald Affair.What readers are saying about The Woman in the Painting:
