Pursuing A Masterpiece

Vasoli, Sandra


Zara Rossi steps into the Ancient Manuscripts room of the Vatican Library. The brilliant young doctoral candidate plans a career decoding archives. Hoping to find a document for her dissertation, she stumbles upon a hidden 500-year-old note; its startling message about a mysterious, lost painting warns of disaster for the Pope. With that revelation, Zara’s life is forever altered. She digs for information about the painting learning that no historical records exist; captivated, she begins a quest to find the masterpiece. Her search exposes the painting’s presence at compelling moments over the history of five centuries; while Zara's own strong-willed pursuit ultimately charts the tumultuous arc of her personal growth and epiphany.
