books that make you go hmmm...

This one sounds good, but I've never read Barbara Ewing.  Have any of you read her?

US & UK Release Date:  July 31, 2009
1765. Filipo di Vecellio of Florence, portrait painter, is the toast of London: rich, successful, and married to Angelica, known as the most beautiful woman in the city. Their Pall Mall home is the hub of the art world; their impressive social gatherings run so smoothly by Filipo's silent sister, Francesca. But beneath the surface, the house conceals a swarm of dangerous secrets. Where does Francesca di Vecellio go as the sun sets over Covent Garden? And why are there always candles lit in her attic, while no candles burn for her brother's exquisite wife? Within the bustling artistic lives of the di Vecellios hides corruption and lies; love and tragedy. And wild ambition unbalances the capital's art world as, finally, a wonderful portrait battles for the right to paint the truth ...


  1. I thought I remembered the name, looked it up, but doesn't seem I have read her, hm...

    And the book did sound intruiging

  2. Haven't heard of this author. Hmmmm. Looks like she's also written a novel called The Mesmerist and another called The Trespass, which has received good reviews. Interesting.

  3. I've never read this author, but the book sounds good...and the cover is striking. If you review it, I'll have to take a look.

  4. I've read The Trespass and a couple of Barbara Ewings contemporary novels and I would certainly recommend her. And this new bookcertainly looks interesting.

  5. I haven't heard of this author but the book sounds really good.
