An enchanting novel on the life and origins of Leonardo da Vinci's mother, as imagined by the author of the "absolutely superb" (Diane Haeger, author of The Secret Bride ) Mademoiselle Boleyn.

A young woman named Caterina was only fifteen years old in 1452 when she bore an illegitimate child in the tiny village of Vinci. His name was Leonardo, and he was destined to change the world forever.

Caterina suffered much cruelty as an unmarried mother and had no recourse when her boy was taken away from her. But no one knew the secrets of her own childhood, nor could ever have guessed the dangerous and heretical scheme she would devise to protect and watch over her remarkable son. This captivating novel imagines the story of Caterina--the brilliant young woman, the adventurer, the alchemist--during the fascinating period of the Renaissance.

I love this book! I can't wait to read Robin Maxwell's other novels. A purely fantastic way to learn some history while imagining the details. Highly recommended.
