Hers is the most famous portrait in the world. Here, in prose as rich as the high Renaissance, is Mona Lisa's tale - a story of passion, intrigue, loss, and, most of all, love. Elisabetta longs for romance, though she thinks she is too plain. Then, on a fateful visit to glittering Florence, she catches the eye of the great Leonardo da Vinci, and falls for a boy named Giuliano de' Medici. It is a dangerous time to be - or be involved with - a Medici. As tragedy and chaos threaten their happiness, Elisabetta faces the bittersweet truth of love.
