Summary
A work of historical fiction set in turbulent 16th-century Italy. Vittoria Colonna ignites the spirit of Michelangelo with love's profound terror and fierce beauty. He was the genius of his age; revered sculptor, painter, architect and poet; fiercely devoted friend; beleaguered artist to the popes; and a pilgrim in search of an elusive redemption. She was a celebrated poet; dutiful daughter; adoring yet betrayed wife; powerful political voice; spiritual seeker; suspected heretic; and the only women Michelangelo ever loved.
