Nell Columbe is struggling with depression after the death of her baby and the disintegration of her marriage. As an expert in the illuminated, medieval Books of Hours, she is employed by the fabulously wealthy David Prince to put together a collection for him. While visiting her French father near Poitiers, Nell stumbles across a clue which suggests that a lost Book of Hours by the famous painter, Pucelle fils might have survived the centuries. As Nell follows up the clues which takes her through France and Italy, she senses that she is coming back to life. As she circles closer to finding the precious lost Book of Hours, she discovers that the woman for whom it was painted, Chiara d'Alessi, had a strange and extraordinary story and, if Nell looks hard enough, she will find out what exactly. Brilliantly researched and sumptuously detailed, THE BOOK OF HOURS weaves past and present together in an emotional and spiritual odyssey that grips from the first page.
