Riassunto: Una extraordinaria historia de amor en el Renacimiento italiano. La tumultuosa vida de Filippo Lippi, famoso monje y pintor del Quattrocento, conocido en la epoca tanto por la maestria en su profesion como por su atractivo para las mujeres. En 1456, Lucrezia Buti ingresa en el convento de Santa Margherita, en Prato, como novicia tras la muerte de su padre. Alli conoce al pintor y se convierte en su fuente de inspiracion para retratar a las madonnas de sus cuadros, surgiendo entre los dos un amor mas fuerte que toda la tradicion que se les opone. / Italy, 1456. The Renaissance is in glorious bloom, an age of unbridled creativity, commerce, art, and innovation. One of the most colorful men of this astonishing time is Fra Filippo Lippi, equally revered as a painter and reviled as a rogue. A great artist, he serves Cosimo de' Medici and the Catholic Church, creating masterpieces in celebration of God and His glory. A Carmelite monk, he acts as chaplain to the nuns of the Convent Santa Margheritaand it is here, behind the cloister walls, that he encounters the greatest temptation of his life. Penniless and beautiful, young Lucrezia Buti has been driven to Santa Margherita more by poverty than piety. Mesmerized by Lucrezia's flawless features, Lippi sees in her face the inspiration for countless Madonnas. With the help of his powerful friends and an unscrupulous prioress, he draws upon favors that will lead to dangerous consequences, and brings the young woman to his studio to serve as his model. Painter and muse are soon united in an exhilarating whirl of artistic discovery. As weeks and months pass, a passionate love develops between the irascible artist and the young nun, resulting in a scandalous romance that threatens to destroy them even as it fuels some of Lippi's greatest work. Their affair sparks anger, envy, and vengeance . . . and it will take a miracle of undying faith, unsurpassed beauty, and unfathomable love to save all that Lippi and Lucrezia cherish. A gorgeous novel that brings together real and imagined characters from Italy's rich history, The Miracles of Prato is a moving and unforgettable tale of desire and devotion, both sensual and spiritual, set in an extraordinary time and place when beauty, faith, and art were celebrated above all.
