Description

Art historian Cate Adamson, desperate to succeed to console her grieving parents, leaves the Midwest to complete her doctorate in New York—only to find herself assigned to an impossible sexist advisor. She struggles to impress him until she discovers a hidden painting, possibly a Baroque masterpiece. Risking her career, financial disaster, and further alienation from her family, she flees to Spain with the painting to consult art experts.

Antonio, an impoverished duke, meets Cate on the train to Seville, and joins her search while attempting to rescue the decaying legacy of his family. They find clues and uncover evidence that will shock the titans of art history, may destroy her prospects as an art historian, and shatter her future with Antonio.

Written with vivid prose, rich references to seventeenth century Spanish art, compelling characters and a historical puzzle, Attribution is the story of one contemporary woman’s journey to understand the past and unlock her future.

Advance Praise

“Moore’s passion for art, and her deep knowledge of the field, makes Attribution as beautifully rendered as the mysterious painting at the center of its gripping mystery. An engrossing debut about the importance and power of truth.” --Stacey Swann, author of Good Morning America Book Club Pick Olympus, Texas

“Desperate for meaning and to fill the hole left by her younger brother’s death, an art historian searches for a lost painting and finds herself. Gorgeously written and as rapturous as a Van Gogh, Moore’s book is a winner.” --Caroline Leavitt, New York Times best-selling author of Pictures of You and With or Without You

“Attribution is an intriguing art-historical fantasia. I loved reading it!”

--Edward J. Sullivan, Professor of the History of Art, New York University

“Moore knocked me out with this high concept, arthouse puzzle. I was on my heels the whole time, in the best way, gobbling up the next clue as the book pushes toward an evocative crescendo. A fascinating debut.” --Josh Mohr, author of Model Citizen

“Moore delivers a riveting, flawlessly paced plot full of unforgettable characters, satisfying turns, and the complex workings of an art world the author knows intimately . . . At stake are the reputations of leading historians, the legacy of one of the great master painters, and the brilliance of the women relegated to their shadows—until now.”

--Angela Pneuman, award-winning author of Home Remedies and Lay It on My Heart
