Summary

A priceless Titian masterpiece. A sumptuous French chateau with a deadly secret. And a mystery hidden in a Bordeaux village that will change their lives forever....

When elegant Anouk, a dealer in American antiques, dies unexpectedly, she leaves the Metropolitan museum an uncatalogued, multimillion-dollar painting by Titian. Her son, Mischa, had no idea she had even owned it and becomes determined to discover the story behind the painting.

This mystery sends him on the trail of his own history, back to the French village of his childhood. There he hopes to uncover the origins of the Gypsy Madonna; he never expects to find himself.

Lose yourself in this story of epic romance and dark mystery set against the backdrop of occupied France and post-war America.

Not her best

I persevered because I have enjoyed many of this authors work but I found most of it depressing. I wondered when it would get going but there wasn’t much to get going and I found the narrators voice droned on and my mind kept wandering so had to replay parts I’d missed. Still wondering what it was all about.

You will enjoy this book.

A really good story,I was hooked from the beginning. I enjoyed it being read by a man,because it is the story of a boy. His life the people he loved and their influence on him as he grew up.
A well written book that is full of descriptive text,that carries you on the journey of Micha.
