"Enormously satisfying...I'm grateful to Cullen for the pleasures of such a splendid read." -Sara Gruen, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Water for Elephants."
In 1559, a young woman painter flees a scandal involving one of Michelangelo's students, and is taken to the Spanish court, where she becomes the young queen's confidante and lady-in-waiting. Through her keenly trained eye, readers watch a love triangle unfold involving the queen, the king, and his half brother-a dangerous gamble that risks the lives of the queen and all those who keep her secrets.
