Romance and intrigue abound in The Sign of the Weeping Virgin, an evocative historical mystery that brings the Italian Renaissance gloriously to life.
In 1480 Florentine investigator Guid Antonio Vespucci and his nephew Amerigo are tangled in events that threaten to destroy them and their beloved city.
Marauding Turks abduct a beautiful young Florentine girl and sell her into slavery. And then a holy painting begins weeping in Guid Antonio's family church. Are the tears manmade or a sign of God s displeasure with Guid Antonio himself?
In a finely wrought story for lovers of medieval and renaissance mysteries everywhere, Guid Antonio follows a spellbinding trail of clues to uncover the thought-provoking truth about the missing girl and the weeping painting's mystifying--and miraculous?--tears all pursued as he comes face to face with his own personal demons.
