Rain soaked and trembling, a mysterious young woman collapses at the door of a monastery on a remote island south of Sicily. Six months later, she dies in childbirth, orphaning her tiny daughter, Theopolda.
Now at age 18, Theopolda, with her two best friends, Will and Sagan, sets out on a perilous journey across plague-ravaged Italy. This changes her life forever. History comes alive as Theo and her friends encounter influential people of the fifteenth century at the court of Lorenzo de Medici, the young ruler of Florence.
She must risk her life and her heart, as she strives to fulfill her destiny.
