Product description

"Passion Blue" is a "Kirkus Reviews" Best Teen Books of 2012When seventeen-year-old Giulia, the orphaned, illegitimate daughter of a Milanese nobleman, learns she s to be packed off to a life behind convent walls, she begs an astrologer-sorcerer for a talisman that will secure what she s certain is her heart s desire: true love and a place where she belongs. But does she really know the compass of her heart? The convent of Santa Marta is full of surprises, including a workshop of nuns who are creating paintings of astonishing beauty using a luminous blue mixed from a secret formula: Passion Blue. As Giulia s own artistic self is awakened she s torn: should she follow the young man who promises to help her escape? Or stay and satisfy her growing desire to paint? This richly imagined novel of a girl s daring journey towards self-discovery transports readers into the fascinating world of Renaissance Italy where love and faith and art inspire passion of many different hues."
