FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR
‘A beautifully written, literary tour-de-force’ John Ironmonger, author of Not Forgetting the Whale
‘A wonderfully written story of art, but also of obsession, friendship and love – I absolutely adored this novel’ Jillian Cantor
The Mona Lisa has hung in the Louvre for over two-hundred years. She has watched alone in silence as millions of people have admired her behind the glass.
Now, she is finally ready to tell her own story.
Over five centuries, from da Vinci’s bustling Florentine studio to the opulent French court, Mona will be desired, stolen, heartbroken, curious, furious, and above all, she will be heard.
‘Solomons’ prose is lyrical and her detail immense. No longer can I look at the Mona Lisa without hearing her. But more, now I know her’ PRESS ASSOCIATION
