Note: Originally published: 2015 Filippo Lippi is growing up in Renaissance Florence. He has a talent - not only can he see the beauty in everything, he can capture it and paint it. But while beauty can seduce you, and art can transport you, it cannot always feed you or protect you. To survive, Filippo - street urchin, forger, drinker and seducer of nuns - must become Fra Filippo Lippi - Carmelite friar, man of God. Yet, at the same time, he is Lippo Lippi, creator of some the most radiantly beautiful paintings, Botticelli's teacher and Medici's confidante. So who is he really - lover, believer, father, teacher or artist?

Note: Fifteenth century Italy, deep in the Tuscan countryside, adolescent Onoria is the sole survivor of a family massacre. Abandoned and alone in the forest, she meets the leader of a fierce band of soldiers who, mistaking her for a boy, takes her under his wing. Determined never to be vulnerable ever again, Onoria reinvents herself as a mercenary, leaving behind the identity one man saw fit to soil and discovering soldier Celavini along the way. In Florence, ex-soldier now government law enforcer Celavini investigates two brutal murders that on first look seem to be crimes of passion. Convinced this hides a more sinister truth, Celavini digs further and is perturbed to discover a family heirloom from his past and a man using his dead brother's name.
