about this item

Il Magnifico, Lorenzo de’ Medici, is dead, and his now-exiled son, Piero, has brought ruin upon Florence. War and famine have tarnished and dulled the glittering city. Yet, the glory that is Renaissance artistry grows more magnificent, as does the work of the women known as Da Vinci’s Disciples. Now, they face their most dangerous challenge thus far, one shrouded in the cloak of a monk.From the ashes of war, Friar Girolamo Savonarola rises. Some call him a savior and a prophet, a man willing to overthrow tyrannical rulers and corrupt clergy, the Borgia Pope among them. Fra Girolamo is determined to remold Florence from an avaricious, secular culture to a paragon of Christian virtues.Many call Savonarola a delusional heretic, incapable of anything but self-serving fanaticism. When he sets out to destroy all secular art forms—literature, sculpture, paintings—Da Vinci’s Disciples call him an enemy…most, but not all of them.Savonarola divides the people of Florence; neighbor turns on neighbor. Within the Disciples—within their families—fissures slash them when Viviana devises a dangerous plan to save whatever they can of the city’s art from Savonarola’s bonfires.Who will reign triumphant? Will their families—plus their loves, friendships, and their art—survive the treacherous threat? Will the Disciples themselves—and all they’ve fought for and achieved—burn…in THE FLAMES OF FLORENCE?
