Italy, 1522. They fled through the night
The beautiful Sibylline mountains of central Italy are plagued by earthquakes, but this has never been a problem for Spanish John. A talented church painter, repairing the damaged churches of the region is his livelihood. But when one of his paintings offends the Archbishop, he and his family must flee the walled city of Spoleto. A new town offers a new beginning, but it soon becomes clear that not all is what it seems; and a special portrait threatens everything John holds dear.
