Book Details

A young woman is put on trial. She has accused her painting teacher of the darkest betrayal, he accuses her of being a immoral liar. What really happened? Rome 1611. A jewel-bright place of change. Artemisia Gentileschi dreams of becoming a great artist. Motherless, she grows up among a family of painters, men and boys. She belongs to her father and will belong to a husband. As Artemisia perfects her craft, a mysterious tutor enters her life. But then the unthinkable happens. A violent act that threatens Artemisia’s honour, and her virtue. In the eyes of her family, Artemisia should accept her fate. In the eyes of the law, she is the villain. But Artemisia is a survivor. And this is her story to tell.
